My name is Paige. I’ve been wanting to start blogging again for a long time, but I wanted to avoid publishing my journal online. Instead, I decided to blog about the thing that I always find myself talking about and thinking about — gender issues. I originally wanted to focus on my experiences dating, but I realized there are so many other things to say.

Dating is not my passion by any means, but gender equality is. When I was a student, I found a way to alter the angle of every project to make it about gender issues somehow. Here I will continue to explore those issues.

I have a reputation for asking “why” a lot. I find some people call someone “woman” in a sexist way, like “listen to me, woman.” But the title of this blog is not “why, woman?” It’s “why woman.” I identify as a woman. I ask a lot of questions. I am embracing these identities here.
