About the Blog

Blog Mission

The blog’s mission is to stimulate conversation among the Barnard community about health, bodies, gender, sexuality, current events, culture, food, pleasure and desire, identity, politics, diversity, and feminism. With our peer educators and staff as regular bloggers, and invited faculty, staff, student groups and alums as featured “guests,” we’ll exchange ideas and opinions about wellness–the intimate, the local, and the global. We hope to take on controversial and potentially difficult topics, grow some activism, have some fun, and build the Well-Woman community online.

Join the conversation.
Blog well. Be well.

Please Note:

1. The views expressed on the blog are those of the individual writers, not of Well-Woman or Barnard College. Well-Woman staff do not edit peer educator or guest blogs (see below for our very “official” disclaimer).

2. The Well-Woman blog is a space for exchanging ideas and opinions, not for providing medical advice. Barnard students with specific personal health related questions, please contact Well-Woman or Primary Care. All other readers, please contact your health care providers.

Comments Policy

We hope to create a community here that is not afraid to discuss difficult and controversial issues. That said, we will not tolerate hate speech or personal attacks, and reserve the right to delete comments containing either.

    My name is Lizzie and I’m a Barnard student doing some volunteer work this summer for an organization called SAFER, Students Active for Ending Rape. Since your blog is so great and covers related issues, we would love to have our blog, Change Happens, added to your blogroll. Here’s some information about us:

    Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) http://www.safercampus.org
    is a nonprofit that provides college students
    with the resources and support to change their schools’ policies, programs,
    and practices around sexual assault. Our blog, Change Happens,
    http://www.safercampus.org/blog monitors current events related to sexual violence,
    foregrounds quality media, especially by students, about sexual assault,
    provides resources for students looking for information about how to combat
    sexual violence on their campuses, and keeps readers updated on SAFER’s
    current projects. It is updated daily (sometimes several times a day).

    Thank you! Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like more
    information about us.
