Feminist Perspectives 1 - Sammy Fogel

Welcome to the first installment of Feminist Perspectives, a six-part online series on the topic of (you guessed it) feminism! We're very excited to share all the great writing we have in store for you, so lets jump right in. Our first official entry, NOTE TO AN AIRLINE PILOT by student and writer Sammy Fogel, is a first-hand account of responding to sexist humor encountered in daily life. Fogel asks: what is the message behind the joke, and how do you get through to the funnyman in the cockpit?


If you're new to this series, we recommend beginning with the Forward by co-editor Bea Keeler as a quick way to familiarize yourself with the issues and with the general approach we've taken in curating this collection.
