In defense of the sanctimonious women's studies set || First feminist blog on the internet

And here comes a new intern !

Hi everyone ! I’m Mounia, and I am Feministe’s fall intern.
In essence, I’m here to take over from Anoushka – so I’ll be putting biweekly link round ups and maybe writing a little bit.

Aaand since my name will be popping up on your reader feed quite a bit, here goes :
I’m an 18 year old college freshling, studying Philosophy/Gender Studies at Columbia University. And by studying philosophy, I mean taking philosophy classes while waiting for an illumination as to what I actually want to do with my life. I have faith it’ll occur by the time I graduate college. Maybe. Hopefully.

Anyway ! I’m queer, cis, TAB, and originally from Morocco and Canada (Quebec), but went to high school in Northern New Mexico. That’s where I’ve done most of my activist work, which has mostly been around queer issues and empowering queer youth.
Other main interests of mine include : feminism (surprise, surprise !), immigration issues, French and Canadian politics, that weird region known as North Africa, macarons, parentheses, bowties, cheese and Arthur Rimbaud.
If I’m being honest, macarons and cheese probably take up more of my time than anything else…but I probably shouldn’t admit to that.

So yep. That’s me. I’ve been reading Feministe for a long time now, and I’m very excited and honored to be here ! If there are things you want to see in the link round-ups, please let me know at – and I’m looking forward to the next few months !

  1. Welcome! Looking forward to reading your work. I also wholeheartedly approve of an interest in bow ties.

    On an unrelated note, the word “freshling” caught my eye. Only place I’ve seen that before is from one particular group at Columbia. If my suspicions are right, you’ve fallen in with an awesome crowd.

  2. Thank you !

    Also, @ Dan : If you are referring to the illustrious Philolexian Society… Then you’d be right. Only a handful of meetings under my belt, but already in love !
