SHE’s run Sexuality Education Week
This week, the Wellesley student Sexual Health Educators (SHEs) are bringing their yearly Sexuality Education Week to campus. This year’s event offerings will include classics such as a consent workshop and Wednesday’s Men’s Panel (a panel of men who are to be mercilessly interrogated about their sex lives). There will also be some newer events, such as “Sexuality and Spirituality,” which is to be held in the Multifaith Center, and the “Extraordinary Sex Open Mic Night.”
Wellesley Alum participates in cooking show “Chopped”
Judy Yao ’15 had no experience in the food industry before joining the co-op Cafe Hoop her senior year at Wellesley. This year, she competed on the popular cooking show “Chopped,” on an episode that aired March 5 spotlighting female butchers. She learned butchery from Savenor’s Butcher Shop in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Butchery is still a male-dominated field, with women making up under a third of the workforce, according to data from the Boston Globe. Yao made it through rounds 1 and 2 on her episode, making a beef strip steak and a sausage patty.
