Spicer on Campus: Little to Offer, Much to Gain

Spicer on Campus: Little to Offer, Much to Gain

By:

If we lived in a just world, Sean Spicer and the other former members of the Trump Administration would be too ashamed to show their faces in public, spending their post-Trump lives separated from a country that has, at best, forgotten about them. Instead, Spicer, in an event sponsored by the Georgetown Institute of Politics…

Social media has forever changed the nature of social justice activism. Internet activism has taken off, allowing people from across the world to share their opinions in a second or promote a rally that may have previously gone unnoticed. Movements don’t necessarily have individual leaders like they did during the Civil Rights era or the…

Call Me By My Name

Call Me By My Name

By:

When I posted a column online entitled “Confessions of a Serial Orgasm Faker,” my first instinct was to publish it anonymously. I mean, “Serial Orgasm Faker” isn’t exactly what I’d want my business card to read. What if a future employer Googles my name? But the decision to claim the story as my own helped…

Remember Georgetown’s Immigrant Roots

Remember Georgetown’s Immigrant Roots

Georgetown University, like many American institutions of its age, was built by immigrants. In a contemporary political climate defined by xenophobia, it is more important than ever to understand and spread this historical truth. The story begins with the English Jesuits who established a colony at St. Mary’s, Maryland in 1634. These men, all of…

Carrying On: A Little Love in My Mailbox

The whirlwind of the first few weeks at college can be a real trial by fire, and when you have to turn a relationship into a long-distance one, you realize just how hard communicating with people you care about can be when you are far away. You need to figure out when to call your…

Vote Yes on Initiative 77 and Give D.C. Workers a Raise

When D.C. voters go to the ballot boxes on June 19, they will have the opportunity to give the city’s tipped workers a raise. If enacted, Initiative 77 would incrementally increase the District’s tipped minimum wage—currently $3.33 per hour—until it reaches $15 per hour in 2026, when it would equal the minimum wage in non-tipped…

A Letter To the Georgetown Community

By:

In between Women’s History Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the women of the Voice gathered to discuss feminist issues on campus with the intention of writing a letter to the Georgetown community. Over the course of that discussion, we talked about a broad range of topics, from sexual assault to underrepresentation of female faculty…

Hard Truths or Soft People?

Hard Truths or Soft People?

By:
04/13/2018

I remember being very confused as a child listening to Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust.” My underdeveloped brain could not fathom why anyone would find dust appetizing. I contemplated the weird things I’d tried in the past, like that one time I ate a dog treat when I was 7, but I just couldn’t…

Dieuson Octave and Me

By:

Dieuson Octave is Kodak Black, a 20-year-old Broward County rapper, two years older than I am. He’s been in and out of jail and the court system since I was a high school freshman. He’s been convicted of sexual assault. A Google search provides as many of his mugshots as his mixtape covers. While I…
