The Scripps Voice
The Scripps Voice is Scripps College's bimonthly student newspaper. It serves as a forum for news and opinions within the Claremont Colleges (5C) community. Any and all 5C students and faculty are encouraged to write for us, although managerial and editorial positions are reserved for Scripps students. Scripps College's founder and namesake, Ellen Browning Scripps, was herself a journalist during the 1860s and 1870s. Ellen Browning Scripps wrote for The Detroit Tribune and The Detroit Evening News in college and after graduating, and her daily columns ranged from news snippets to suffragette appeals. The Scripps Voice hopes to continue the tradition of outspoken feminist journalism that our school's namesake was notorious for, while adjusting our feminist lens for a newer, more intersectional era. Our hope and vision is that The Scripps Voice, in print and online, will serve the Scripps College community as a public forum for student expression, be it in written, video, image, or commenting form. Additionally, we want to be a news resource to the community, that provides accurate and relevant reporting about important events and issues on campus. In allowing students to voice their opinions through whatever media desired, we hope a larger community can assemble that can learn and interact with the unique type of feminist discourse that can be found at a Women's College in the 21st century.
