    28 College Students Explain Why Feminism Is Important To Them

    "I need feminism because I want to be described as strong, not bitchy."

    Quoted above is Ilana Greenstein, Events Coordinator for the Columbia University Democrats. Greenstein started a "Women in the Media" project at Columbia this semester, in an attempt to "bring awareness to the marginalization and sexism that women, especially female politicians, face in the modern-day media." The "Feminism Is" photo project is one part of that larger effort. Photos courtesy of the Columbia Dems Facebook page.
