Before Wellesley I had never considered how male-centric my world was. I started to think about, if I were a man, how much more empowered I might feel growing up and seeing people of my gender in most positions of power. Once I got to Wellesley and there were women running everything my eyes opened. I remember how surprised I was what all the syllabi said "her" not "him." And then I realized how much of a bummer it is that it sounded wrong to me. I know I am very lucky to have this sight super-power so I try to always keep it with me.
Wellesley opened my eyes to inequalities I didn't know shaped my world.
