Sunday's New York Times Magazine had a thought-provoking story on a Harvard student group founded on the principle of sexual abstinence.
The group's co-president, Janie Fredell ’09, tells the Times, "I care deeply for women's rights." She casts her choice as a marker of strength—resisting temptation and cultural pressures—rather than purity, but says, "People just don't get it. Everyone thinks we're trying to promote this idea of the meek little virgin female."
Other students and alumni who figure in the story include Leo Keliher ’10, Lena Chen ’09, Justin Murray ’07, and Sarah Kinsella ’07. Read the story here.
