Northfield News - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 5:00pm
Many don’t recall that while women won the right to vote in 1920, newspapers routinely segregated employment ads into “men only” and “girls only” jobs until the mid-1970s. But Kristine Holmgren does.

A Dialogue on Sport, Protest, and the NFL National Anthem Debate

St. Olaf College - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 4:37pm
Alan Page, whose illustrious career has included time spent as a Hall of Fame defensive tackle with the Vikings and as a justice with the Minnesota State Supreme Court, is one of the panelists who will visit St. Olaf January 23.

On January 23, less than two weeks before the Super Bowl comes to Minneapolis, the St. Olaf College Institute for Freedom and Community will host a town hall–style forum on sport, protest, and the controversies surrounding the NFL and its players taking a knee during the national anthem.

The St. Olaf community will be joined for this conversation by Justice Alan Page, whose illustrious career has included time spent as a Hall of Fame defensive tackle with the Vikings, as a justice with the Minnesota State Supreme Court, and as the founder of the Page Education Foundation. Joining Justice Page will be Jackie MacMullan, an award-winning sports journalist, and Nate Boyer, a former Green Beret and NFL athlete who played a key role in convincing Colin Kaepernick to kneel rather than sit during the national anthem.

The event, which begins at 7 p.m. in Viking Theater in Buntrock Commons, is free and open to the public. It will be streamed and archived online.

Time will tell how much of an impact Carleton’s SAAC will have for student-athletes on campus. However, the growing membership totals from this year alone has been a big improvement from years past, and represents a huge step in making Carleton’s SAAC more active and influential.

Pipe bursts in Sayles-Hill, campus adjusts

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

“We were really impressed with how the campus community pulled together to get Sayles back online; there were many unsung heroes last week who went above and beyond, including Facilities, Campus Services and ITS. For the most part, folks were very understanding and patient with the setback. This disaster highlighted just how vital the Sayles-Hill Campus Center and its services are to Carleton.”

Time's up for white women's complicity

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

If we are to move forward, we need white women to acknowledge their privilege and their complicity in structures of power. How do we reach the women in Alabama and across the U.S. that vote for sexual harassers and abusers? I’m not sure. I do know that it needs to be done while we work with women who have been consistently fighting for equality, safety, and respect. We cannot sweep the wrongs women (especially white women) do under the rug for the sake of uplifting an ideal vision of “women.”

The Year of the Woman hoax

Carletonian - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 12:00pm

Labeling 2017 as the Year of the Woman is a big statement. The label “Year of the Woman” was first popularly used in 1992 after many female senators were elected. It has since been used, especially in 2017, to recognize the rise and importance of women in politics and society as a whole. The year 2017 saw enormous marches all over the nation to draw attention to and fight for the rights of women. In moments like those I believed in the slogan, and will always believe in the power of women. But I have to question, has there ever really been a Year of the Woman?
