We think often of our interns in the Class 2020 and were delighted when a recent update from Maddie Fleischmann assured us that she's not only faring well but remembering here time at the Women's Center just as fondly as we do. Earlier this month, International Women's Day put Maddie in mind of how much she enjoyed working with other interns to celebrate the same day on Grounds in 2019.

1.    What brought you to the Women's Center?
There's something really special about the people at the Women's Center. Each person has a riveting perspective to bring, analyzes societal implications so deliberately, and fights hard for change. I wanted to work alongside those individuals, as well as channel my usual rants into actual and productive action.
