SUPPORT OUR NONPROFIT NEWSROOM

We're an independent student-run newspaper, and need your support to maintain our coverage.

This year’s International Women’s Day happens to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Berkeley and classes being moved online. It’s been a tough year, to say the least, yet women and gender-nonconforming folks have continued to persevere, fight back and overcome the odds stacked against them. We’ve seen Kamala Harris elected as the United States’ first female vice president and UC Berkeley’s Jennifer Doudna become the first female campus faculty member to receive a Nobel Prize, to mention a few.

We at the Clog want to recognize these larger achievements but also the smaller ones that take place every day — everything from empowering TikToks we scroll through on our phones in between lectures to the inspiration we can draw from popular TV shows. We hope our content inspires you to think a little bit deeper about what it means to you, personally, to be a woman and to stand up to anything and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise. Whatever that definition may be, it deserves to be celebrated, not just today but every day of the year!

Peace, love, Clog.
