Underrepresented on the Hilltop: Georgetown’s Women Fight for Equality

By:

Georgetown University’s Board of Directors, which governs the university and makes decisions regarding tuition, academic programs, and other university policies along with President John DeGioia, is composed of nine women and 32 men. The board’s executive committee has 12 men, and two women. The executive committee’s compensation subcommittee has four members, all of whom are…

Folksy, simple, and sincere, The Oh Hellos make music that feels as warm as it is melancholy. The band began with siblings Maggie and Tyler Health, who enlisted the help of their friends to complete their sound while on tour. Every song feels genuine, and their music tends to have a background beyond the typical….

Last year, I wrote an angst-filled playlist for the feelings you feel after V-Day. You’ve seen all your friends snapchats of their lovely dates with their signifs. You’ve watched a trashy romcom and cried yourself to sleep. But this year, I’ve decided to do something different. I’ve decided to make a playlist to get you…

BØRNS is from another world. The Michigan-born singer-songwriter has such an enchanting, lofty, unrealistically beautiful voice that hearing his music feels like a dream in another dimension. His most recent album, Blue Madonna, is just as ethereal as his first, Dopamine, which was released in 2015. The highlights of Blue Madonna include “God Save Our…

It may be clichéd to say an artist is “up-and-coming,” but there’s no better way to describe Cuco, the 18-year-old singer fresh out of Los Angeles. His music is filled with simple synth and techno beats, but when layered under Cuco’s smooth voice (still filled with teen passion and uncertainty), it becomes unbelievably complex. He…

Last year’s Tennis concert at the 9:30 Club was one of the best I’ve ever seen. The duo of Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley is impossibly magical live, and their retro pop sound is only improved by their physical presence. Their latest album, Yours Conditionally, is true to their lofty, vintage stylings, and soft love…

People look forward to the new year for many reasons: resolutions, a fresh start, the Rose Parade. But my excitement stems from one thing and one thing only: music festival lineups. You may respond to this with, “But Claire, you’ve never actually been to a music festival.” And to that I say, “Let me dream!!!”…

As 2017 is now behind us and various year-end Top Ten lists roll out, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some of those great films that may have not been on your radar in the last year – movies that weren’t huge blockbusters, movies that weren’t featured on the Voice’s Top Ten list, movies…

As the horrible year that was 2017 wrapped up, with scores of men in Hollywood being accused of sexual assault and harassment, major actresses, including Meryl Streep and Emma Stone, announced that they would wear black to the Golden Globes in protest. The irony and inadequacy of their protest is pretty obvious; it’s not uncommon…

In a previous piece about Gilmore Girls, I trashed the show because that’s what it is: garbage. It perpetuates a ton of stereotypes about women and about relationships, and I wanted none of it despite the fact that I gleefully watched all of it. So I was happily surprised when the show’s creator came out…
