Column: Women’s leadership at GW

Five obnoxious Brits dressed up in short skits and go-go boots flashing peace signs and cleavage to screaming 12-year olds. A self-proclaimed feminist standing under a spotlight spouting off about her lower genitalia and charging people for it.

Finding calm amid chaos

For a few moments at a time, his life is still. Feet set, knees bent, orange globe in tow, he raises his non-shooting arm up vertically, uncurls his fist and folds his ring finger under his thumb.
