Women’s issues covered in the Buchtelite


Women’s issues are getting coverage in the Buchtelite, the University of Akron student newspaper.

You can read her piece, “Make room for women in the press box on the Buchtelite Web site. You can also read her post, “New Indians regime arrives with optimism” on the Cleveland Magazine blog.
