Below are brief descriptions of each section:
Campus Life: This section publishes all kinds of articles, but focuses on events happening around campus (screenings, talks, elections), campus and UC-related policy and happenings, etc. This section aims to publish all types of articles, from event recaps, interviews with professors, and long-form investigative work that critiques UCLA's activities as a corporation.
Politics: Deals with political happenings that are of importance to the feminist movement, not just in the US but also and especially in the non-Western world. This section will be a mix of short reporting and longer pieces.
Gendertainment: Publishes pop-culture critique from intersectional perspectives, including but not limited to popular films, music, and TV shows.
Arts + Creative: Similar to Gendertainment, one of the aspects of this section is to publish critiques of art. However, this section does not focus on "pop" culture - i.e. it focuses on local artists and it is also more interested in event coverage (i.e. of arts events happening around LA). It also publishes creative work (prose, poetry).
Dialogue: This section is very similar to the Opinion section of a newspaper. The topics you can write on are varied, but the format will be consistent: pieces on the longer side that are very research-based and are designed to be persuasive.
