New AQ Article Online: Feminism on Campus Today

Ashley Thorne

A new essay on campus feminism is now available online at NAS.org. Authored by Karin Agness, founder and president of the Network of enlightened Women (new friends of NAS), the article will appear in the forthcoming "Student Culture" issue of Academic Questions (vol. 23, no. 2). Agness documents the rise of feminism in higher education and recounts her own encounter with feminism as an undergrad at UVA:

At the end of the tour, I asked her, “Would the Women’s Center consider cosponsoring a group for conservative women?” She looked at me as if I were crazy, chuckled, and said, “Not here.” I thanked her and decided to start a club for conservative women on my own.
