Harpy’s Magazine presents our first theme Body Image where every single body type is valued. Society creates competition and an unrealistic glorification that does not exist. It is important to recognize the different body types and shapes and we can normalize this with the showcase of different stories and experiences.

“I believe in women working together to create amazing things and to bringing each other up in the process. Normalizing women’s bodies has always been something I have been drawn to, and it translates into my artwork.� - Bailey Quint

I started watercolor painting as a hobby in high school, and have pursued it as a stress-reliever and form of selfcare ever since. I now sell my art as a side hustle to help with college expenses. I work in watercolor, acrylic, digital, and textiles such as woven wall hangings. I love using bright colors and uplifting messages to spread joy through my art. ~~ Ellen Hilbun

The Coalition for Women Students appreciates the support of the student body. Many of our organizations, programs, events, and retreats are due largely to the support of the Services and Activities Fees (S&A Fees).

FemScouts is a new Women*s Center program which is modeled after the Radical Monarchs. FemScouts participate in various activities to enhance their feminist tool kit, and they complete units to earn badges. We discuss feminist literature and media, learn new skills, and practice feminist activism. Our goals are to understand different social justice issues, promote activism, and build community. Units are created by the Women*s Center in partnership with various Student Affairs departments which support equity, WSU faculty, and WSU community members. We welcome FemsScouts of all genders and identities from every campus. Scouts can join a troop at any time, let us know if you’re interested! Our Fall 2020 units are Intro to Feminism: The 411 on the F-Word, Body Love & Radical Self-Acceptance, and Discovering HerStory. We have a lot of ideas to grow this new program which include facultyled and community workshops, creating activist projects, intertroop activities and discussion, and opportunities for Scouts to lead and present their work.

Domestic violence is not physical violence alone. Domestic violence is any behavior the purpose of which is to gain power and control over a spouse, partner, girl/boyfriend, or intimate family member. Controlling behavior is a way for the batterer to maintain dominance over the victim.

How to recognize Violence? Violence is extremely different. Your partner bullies, threatens, or controls you. Your partner controls your money. Your partner cuts you off from family and friends. Your partner physically abuses you. Your partner sexually abuses you. For the LGBTQ community, a lot of the signs are similar but if the people around you are using your identity to abuse you. If you are in a situation where you can identify domestic violence, please look at the resources in the following.

How has COVID affected Domestic Violence? COVID has forced people to stay at home in situations that have become more violent, more dangerous, and more frequent. People who had escape plans outside of their homes are now forced to stay at home. This is a public health crisis that is flourishing in houses all around the world. Extremely stressful situations like the pandemic and economic downfall have been proven to increase violence, and this is causing a rise in domestic violence cases. Please call authorities if you are in a situation that you feel unsafe in.

Where to find resources? National Domestic Violence has a chat and a hotline to call. The Domestic Violence Hotline is 1(800)-799-SAFE (7233), or visit the website, thehotline.org, and chat live with an advocate. Please reach out to authorities for your safety. Most areas have shelters in case you need it. If you are in a situation that you can create an emergency plan, do so: Pack a bag with keys, extra clothes, important papers, money, and medicines. You might keep it at a friend’s house. Have a plan for calling the police in an emergency. Know where you’ll go and how you’ll get there.
