Nicky Demitry, Women's Center intern with the Social Media Marketing Team, sat down with Claire Poumerol and Jaqui Arechiga to talk about the culture and community of the University Salsa Club and their inspiration for an all-female dance. Read this excerpt from her interview as they explore how Salsa Club balances the sensuality of dance with consent and safety, and how it promotes body positivity and confidence.

You can find the full interview over at Iris Magazine.

In my June POV, I talked about disparities in birth outcomes across the globe, noting that “a disproportionate number of women in the US who die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes are women of color, poor women, women without access to healthcare.” World Health Organization data shows that both perinatal mortality rates and maternal mortality rates range widely.

To the Alumni of the University of Virginia

We write to you as alumni with a message and a request that we hope you will support.

The last several years have seen thousands of students launch and fulfill dreams at the University, much as we did. Yet there has also been a significant amount of turmoil. Many of us scattered around the country and the world have watched and read about the cultural and historical issues that are challenging students and the larger community of Charlottesville, Virginia. One of these issues is sexual violence -- which no one condones.
