Misogyny As A Hate Crime: Two Steps Forward And One Step Back?
The Paradoxical Progressiveness Of The New 'Gossip Girl' Reboot
A newcomer to student journalism, my time writing for student publications has spanned less than a year long. However, in that time I have attempted to turn my hand to as many types of journalism as I’ve been able to find. Typically, I write feature style pieces for online magazine publications such as Impact, Her Campus Nottingham and The Tab, but I have also written about subjects such as entertainment or style analysis. In addition to this, I have also been a part of an investigation piece for Impact Magazine’s print addition into women’s safety in Nottingham and am partaking in a second, ongoing investigation for Impact on the topic of stalking. For both of these investigations I took on the role of interviewing local politicians, following having interviewed a student who witnessed an alleged police misconduct. I attempted to write an investigative piece on my own on the topic of Nottingham bouncers physically assaulting women at clubs and bars, but the sensitive nature of the subject matter meant that it became increasingly difficult to complete singularly and thus I had to unfortunately abandon the project. The topics that I tend to focus on are matters that generally relate to politics, sexism, fashion and pop culture.
Looking forward, I hope to achieve an editor or co-editor position at Impact magazine and to get more involved in telling a story through journalism using visual imagery, for example broadcast and television journalism.
