Recently, the Women’s Resource Center announced it would end productions of The Vagina Monologues. The reason? It’s insufficiently diverse and inclusive. First, let me be clear that I agree with that assessment, and I claim no attachment to the continuation of the monologues. But even as a queer feminist, soon to be graduating from Eastern’s Women’s and Gender Studies program, I write this: it’s a terrible mistake to end the monologues on a basis that boils down to The Vagina Monologues do it wrong.
In this weekly series, I focus on one potential Democratic candidate and analyze whether or not they would be a good candidate to face Trump.
Last Monday was one of the most exciting football games I have ever witnessed. The Kansas City Chiefs took on the Los Angeles Rams in a battle that best compared to Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali exchanging punches through 15 rounds. By the end of the game both teams totaled 105 points, 1001 yards and 7 turnovers. I loved it.

I am at a loss to know what to do with certain thoughts and feelings following the mid-term elections.
The 2018 midterms saw record voter turnout with over 113 million Americans casting ballots, according to CBS News. 49% of registered voters showed up to the polls, becoming the highest midterm turnout since 1966.
By the time the 2018 election had concluded, candidates in Michigan had raised over $152 million. With such a large amount of money being raised, the interest of the politicians becomes disconnected from that of the people. The people want their opinion on issues facing America, from healthcare to climate change, to be the deciding factor on action politicians take.
President Trump has constantly found ways to test rules that rightfully limit the powers of the executive branch. So far, the surprising strength of a 231-year-old document has kept him in check.
November 6 held another historical election in the United States. Republicans took greater control over the Senate, while the predicted “Blue Wave” only somewhat hit the House of Representatives with Democrats taking over a majority of seats.
Over $128 million has been raised by politicians and organizations in Michigan, just during the 2018 election cycle. Nationwide, almost $2.5 billion has been raised. The purpose of this money is to buy influence; candidates want to buy TV ads, billboards, and any other form of advertisement to get their name out to the public.
I am writing to respond to the frequent claim made by conservative-Republicans that Democrats in the Congress and in the liberal part of the news media support "RECKLESS SPENDING" by the federal government on programs that help people.
I seem to find myself in the minority in today's national Democratic Party.
One of the most important midterm elections of our lifetime is only one week away. The results will determine whether President Trump’s agenda can continue to be implemented, or if it will come to a grinding halt. If Democrats take back control of either chamber of Congress the latter will be the case. It is likely the Democrats will use this power to begin investigations of the Trump administration, with the President’s tax returns at the top of the list.
The story of a migrant caravan making its way towards the United States boarder has been covered extensively on cable news networks as President Trump began picking it up as a talking point for the midterm elections.
Drums to hold the beat, bass to create the rhythm, guitar to make you bob your head, the occasional piano and strings to compliment the singer, and the voice that becomes the center of attention as soon as it's introduced. Between Luke's tongue roles and Adam's glissandos, The Struts have found a way to mesh the sound of English rock bands from the past with a unique ego that only The Struts can pull off.
I was a freshman in college when I first saw the viral hashtag float up on my Facebook feed. It wasn’t a reposted article, or some famous person I’d never met before. It was a friend from high school, and her story wouldn’t be the last.
The term “broke college student” is one that the 18-25-year-old knows far too well. The jobs we work primarily pay minimum wage, our hours leave something to be desired, and we have to worry about paying for school, paying for housing, paying bills, paying books, and paying and paying and paying. Not only does it feel like being in college leads to a loss of money, but to a loss of friendships as well. How can these relationships be rekindled? Through home cooking.
“The uproarious laughter between the two and their having fun at my expense,” said Dr. Christine Blasey Ford last week in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
