Education: Women's Colleges Promote Sweatpants & Poor Tampon Hygiene, Says Wesleyan Student(via @Jezebel)

A Wellesley alumna’s response to the infamous Wesleyan article:

The real value of a single-sex education isn’t in removing men entirely, but removing people who disrespect women. That does create a situation that’s isn’t much like the ‘real world,’ but I know that I wouldn’t have the same commitment to women’s issues or understanding of the subtle ways sexism works if I didn’t have a glimpse of what life looks like without it. I started Wellesley as one of those girls who doesn’t really consider herself a feminist and ended up, well, here.

Definitely worth a read!
