Pauline Holdsworth covers the Gender & Women’s Rights beat as a reporter for Campus Progress. She is a fourth-year English major at the University of Toronto and is the Editor-in-Chief of The Strand, a student newspaper. In 2009, she was one of five national Portfolio Gold Medalists for Writing in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and in 2008, she studied creative writing at the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts. As someone who grew up in central Pennsylvania but currently lives in Toronto, she’s interested in exploring how progressive politics manifest in different ways north and south of the Canadian border and across rural and urban divides. She’s passionate about public spaces, mental health, and analyzing the way gender and violence are framed in the media.
