Lauren Bunce is a junior double-majoring in English and Women’s Studies at Duke University. She is interested in the intersections of these two disciplines and how they are manifested in literature, philosophy, and education. Last year, Lauren co-edited The Archive Literary Magazine, Duke’s oldest student publication and the third-oldest literary magazine in the country! She is also a domestic violence crisis hotline advocate and an Undergraduate Writing Consultant at Duke’s Writing Studio.
Gender justice is important to Lauren because she believes that activism is more than an “us” versus “them” game, and she appreciates the National Judicial Education Program’s educatory approach to elucidating the realities of adult victim sexual assault and domestic violence in a system previously reluctant to reconsider its best practices. She is looking forward to a creative, collaborative summer at Legal Momentum!
