Jazlyn Andrews, Jade Frost, Angela Kong, and Njeri Summey to Intern for The Feminist Wire this Summer

Feminist & Gender Studies majors Jazlyn Andrews, Jade Frost, Angela Kong, and Njeri Summey will kick off the summer prior to their senior year by interning for The Feminist Wire, a peer-reviewed online site that aims to “provide socio-political and cultural critique of anti-feminist, racist, and imperialist politics pervasive in all forms and spaces of private and public lives of individuals globally." Their internships will be funded by awards they received from the Summer Internship Funding Awards Program through the Colorado College Career Center.

Andrews, Frost, Kong, and Summey will be working primarily for the "Personal Is Political" column, which honors personal narrative as a source of politics, analysis, pedagogy, and survival. Thus, in keeping with the feminist legacy of naming the private and personal as sites that are no less political than the public, "Personal Is Political" explicates and interrogates the interior lives of feminists and offers self-reflexive analyses.
