A Woman in the White House? PCWP "Madame Presidenta" Panel Recap

By Mara Flanagan
September 27, 2014 - 11:49pm

Since Hillary Clinton made a strong presidential run and Sarah Palin skyrocketed into the spotlight as a potential VP, we've wondered how close we might be to a female president. Madame Presidenta: Why Not U.S.? - Vamos Meninas explores the election of Brazil's Dilma Roussef and examines the global influence of her presidency. The Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics invited Her Campus Chatham to partner with them to present their screening of the documentary. If you’ve ever wonderful what it would mean for the U.S. to have a woman in the Oval Office (or how we’d even get there), the movie is a must-see. In the meantime, we’ve got a recap of the October 17 panel discussion following the screening....

Class of 2014: Beti Kercelli, HC Chatham Style Blogger

By Mara Flanagan
September 6, 2014 - 10:10pm

We're celebrating the HC Chatham team members who graduated in spring 2014. First up: Beti Kercelli! Beti traversed campus with an eye for the extraordinary. She'd accepted the Style Blogger role on the spot at the Student Organization Fair in fall 2013. The Style Blog was a new HC section - aside from a few selfies and snapshots, the Chatham team hadn't determined the direction it would take. Beti immediately made her mark on the fashionable feature. She spotted unique and entirely striking ensembles and accents in unlikely places. A royal blue dress on the quad. A bright yellow coat in Braun/Falk/Coolidge. A pink plaid scarf on a staircase. But what stood out most about Beti's approach to style was her serious commitment to the people wearing the...
