Several weeks ago, we put up a press release for the First Annual “Young Bluestockings” Writing Challenge. We invited high schoolers to join the Bluestockings conversation. We were absolutely floored by the submissions that we received. Pieces covered topics from body image to race in feminism to nerd culture. After much deliberation, we decided on our grand prize winner–whose piece you can find in our Fall 2013 print publication–and our group of finalists–whose pieces you can read on our blog throughout the next couple of days.
Thank you to all the Young Bluestockings who shared their thoughts with us. We really enjoyed getting a little peek into your brilliant minds.
