Editorial: 23 years down and a lifetime to go

Today is my twenty third birthday. Yes, I am still in my undergrad and yes, I do have goals for myself. I have spent four and a half years at Laurier and honestly still do not want to leave. We often have a timeline in our minds, or at least I do, and it often relates to how old we […]

Editorial: Finding inspiration on the field

Soccer has always been a passion of mine, and my long-time love for the sport could not have been fuelled without a dash of inspiration given to me by some of my favourite professional female soccer players.

Unhooking the stigma behind going braless

Unhooking the stigma behind going braless

There isn’t a woman I know that enjoys wearing a bra. How can anyone blame them? Bras are confining, they cut into the skin and add an extra layer of fabric in the summer. However, because I’m not entirely small chested, I never considered going braless. People would notice; my breasts would be out of control. It seemed like the […]

Accepting that we are agents of change

Accepting that we are agents of change

Some may say that now, perhaps more than ever, we are facing revolutionary social climates. This is not to discredit the beliefs upon which this statement is built, but it is exactly this rarefication of events that poses a problem: a secularity in thinking and the misremembrance of the past and future.
