From the Editor

by ursavoice

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I present the first issue of Voice dedicated to the Vagina Monologues. Since its inception, Voice has been eager to produce themed issues, but collecting enough articles on a particular theme has proven elusively difficult month after month. Needless to say, we could not be more pleased that our first ever themed issue is dedicated to such an important cause. Of course, this issue is not just about the play, but about what it represents: women, equality, and justice.


As Executive Editor, I would like to thank all of our contributors this month for their sincere, moving, and provocative pieces. I would also like to thank Assistant Editors Caroline Reiser and Sam Titelman for their tireless work on creating this month’s issue. Beginning next month, Caroline and Sam will be taking over the reins as Co-Executive Editors. They are filled with great ideas for Voice, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.


Finally, I would like to say a personal thank you to all of you. It has been a pleasure to read your articles, receive your support, and grow from your critiques. This has been an invaluable experience for me, and I am honored to have been involved with a project that has established such a strong presence at UCI Law. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


All the best,

Zeenat Hassan

Executive Editor


P.S. And thanks (and kudos!) to the 1L authors for providing this edition’s comic relief in the form of a hilarious, though not vagina-related, collection of poems. Keep writing!
