    The Science of Volunteering

    In 1961, a psychologist by the name of Albert Bandura conducted an experiment based on the developmental theory of social learning. Boys and girls, between the ages of 36 months and 3-years, were randomly assigned to play in a room with another adult. In the control condition, the child and adult played quietly side-by-side. In the experimental condition, the adult was tasked to act aggressively (physically and verbally) with a bobo doll strategically placed in the corner of the room. After a short break by both groups, the children were brought back to the play room to continue playing uninhibited while psychologists observed their play. The results from the study were profound, revealing the salient way children learn from the modeling behavior of adults, even without direct instruction. The children who were exposed to 20 minutes of aggressive play by the adult experimenter, were significantly more likely to use aggression with the bobo doll than children who had not been exposed to that kind of modeling.

    Warnock and Ossoff win their Georgia Senate Seats

    Although January 6th was marked by upsetting footage and news of an aggressive mob attacking the people’s house -- our Capitol, we must also celebrate the hard-fought accomplishment of two senate seat wins from Georgia! Thanks to you, and your diligence in the cause of voting from abroad, we were able to solidify a democrat majority in the House and Senate. With important issues that have had to wait patiently on the back-burner as we mobilized to secure Biden and Harris’s win, we are now able to turn to what is important, our cause, to not only protect, but promote women’s rights. Thank you, Georgia!

    what my protest looks like

    In recent months, scratch that, in recent years, I’ve felt the nagging responsibility that I should be doing more about the things I believe in and support. Of course, I vote, call/write my representatives, and donate money to a variety of organizations. More often, though, I get mad at myself for not having thousands of followers on Instagram or Twitter that I can influence with a picture or short quote. I get mad that I haven’t donated blood or delivered food to a family in need. Especially during the pandemic, when I know that staying home and isolated with my family will keep my neighbors and community safe, I am mad that there are people that won’t listen, and I can’t do anything about it.

    Why the Georgia Runoff NEEDS Your Vote

    November 3rd has come and gone and we have danced in the streets, cried, held our children, and kissed our loved ones as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were announced the 46th President and Vice President of the United States. While memes and hashtags proliferated the internet about being able to breathe lighter, or finally exhale, for the first time in four years, we were quickly reminded that a troubled time was far from over. At the time of this article, the 45th President has yet to concede and begin a peaceful transfer of power, and whether or not Democrats will hold a majority in the Senate, a crucial condition for passing essential policy, is undecided until the January 5th runoff in Georgia.

    The Dangers of Misinformation

    Misinformation is ‘its own pandemic’ among parents, a recent New York Times article stated. In the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, a sharp cultural divide can be seen between Trump and Biden supporters, predominantly in the area of whether these supporters adhere to scientifically backed information or not. Likening the spread of misinformation to pandemic-like proportions not only means that misinformation is rampant, but that it is also highly contagious.

    Roe vs. Wade and Jobs

    In the 1973 landmark decision, Roe v. Wade granted women more reproductive freedom, effectively shifting gender disparities towards a more equal footing while lending women more opportunities for education and career advancement. By allowing the termination of pregnancies under certain conditions by reason of a woman’s right to privacy, women acquired more sexual and reproductive autonomy, sparking a revolution in the ideology of a woman’s contribution to society.

    Southwest Daily News


    Before 1973, child bearing was closely associated with marriage, with more women marrying at a young age and securing financial dependence from their husbands. At this time, 46% of married women, aged 25 to 46 years, participated in the job market, a rising trend up from previous generations due to an increase in job supply and demand. Nonetheless, only 8% of women had completed a 4-year education, limiting job opportunities to mostly clerical work. A ‘quiet revolution’ in the mid 70’s was soon the catalyst for Roe v. Wade’s ruling — a movement that connoted the growing expectations women felt in how they anticipated contributing to society.
