The Sissy State - A Blog Made to Empower Women


Throughout my whole semester in Newsactivism, I had the chance to write about various interesting problems such as the introduction of the travel ban by the Trump’s administration, Kim Kardashian’s slut-shaming story and even made an opinion piece on the fake news. Going in the same direction for my final project, I took the liberty to create a blog tackling different women’s issues like feminism, rape culture and the pressure of being perfect – in other words, issues I am passionate about – instead of writing a research paper or take a volunteer opportunity.

Volunteer Opportunity: Girls Action Foundation

Are you a #girlboss? Are you passionate about women’s issues? Do you believe in empowering young girls? Perhaps, you find yourself having a lot of free time in your hands. If that’s the case, let me introduce you to Girls Action Foundation. Founded in 1995, it focuses on providing a space for girls to speak out about current issues in their society as well as helping them to build the skills needed to create a movement. They want them to realize they “have the power to be agents of social change”.
