Most days, I am proud to be a sorority woman. I wear my letters in support of the organization that unites the women of this campus, who excel in subjects that would have been off limits to us only a few years ago simply because of our gender. I participate...

Not in My High School

(30) Comments | Posted March 14, 2013 | 3:27 PM

In 2010, I graduated from Deerfield High School, a mid-sized school in the northern suburbs of Chicago. I still remember how massive that campus felt on my first day of freshman year, and how claustrophobic I was by graduation. I beam with a quiet pride at the end of the...

Recently, a colleague of mine at the New Orleans Public Defenders turned to me and said, "You know, the longer I work here, the more I start to believe in corporeal punishment."
