I am interested in your post because it states that Feminism is changing a lot over the years. One thing you said that stands out to be is “feminist group is fighting for women’s rights and completely disregarding the rights of Men” I found this to be interesting because women aren’t really disregarding men at all. For example, A…[Read more]
Dear Malia, I am excited about your post because it talks about what other people think or view feminism. One thing you said that stands out for me is “…’empowering’ where 70% believed it to be a descriptor, while only 26% believed it was not.” I think this is sad because people see feminism is empowering yet they don’t even have that. Thanks…[Read more]

Dear McKenna, I really find this post to be interesting because I myself am a really happy and joyful person and it’s amazing learning the story behind the word itself.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
