We’ve all been there haven’t we? Had a moment of weakness where the temptation and familiarity of a past relationship becomes too much to resist.

Who are you and what do you want? N: I’m Naomi and I want to make it through ’til next week. L: I’m Lily (Naomi’s other half) and I want world domination and Margiela boots. Oh, also. We’re the presidents of the VUWSA Women’s Group. Did you choose the feminist life or did the feminist […]

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the future. People keep asking me what I want to do after being VUWSA president (m8, it’s only April). They keep asking me what my dream job is. And, to be honest, I don’t really know. Many of you are probably in the same boat. In the aftermath […]
