Hi I’m Sam and welcome to my blog. I’m a junior at James Madison University double majoring in Justice Studies and Communication Studies. The goal of my blog is to highlight women in American political culture and how their roles, their rights, and how they access justice through politics are very different from males. I am a member of Sigma Alpha Lambda honor fraternity and a policy debater at JMU. My studies concentrate in social justice issues in the US, especially those of race, gender, and ability as well as rhetoric and communication to form effective advocacy. When I’m not studying, working, or debating, I enjoy relaxing at home watching Food Network with my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years and our little Pomchi puppy, Theodore “Teddy” Woofsevelt.
