Op-Ed: UNICEF is more than just a name

UNICEF at Northeastern may be a branch of the larger UNICEF organization, but we are anything but small. Our dedication to making our organization more recognized on campus pushes us to continue thinking of innovative ideas.

Op-Ed: Women’s March excludes transgender community

Op-Ed: A crown prince is not a revolutionary

The New York Times ran an op-ed on its front page titled “Saudi Arabia’s Arab Spring, at Last,” in which Thomas Friedman likened bin Salman’s ascension to the revolutionary waves of the Arab Spring. Aside from being offensive to the millions who risked their lives during those popular uprisings, this comparison is flat-out wrong. He has shown no interest in real reform for Saudi Arabia.

Op-ed: A thank you note to sexual violence survivors

Thank you for your courage. Thank you for getting up each day and stepping into the world. Thank you for setting an example for the rest of us. Thank you for facing your fears, for overcoming your fears and for conquering your fears. Would that the rest of us had a fraction of your courage.

Op-ed: We will not be silenced

As students arrived to Hillel for the event, other students who were part of the Students for Justice in Palestine, or SJP,  group at Northeastern were protesting the event outside of the building . These individuals do not believe that Israel should exist and defend itself. While they have every right to have an opinion and make their voice heard, they did this in a very disrespectful way.
