About Rooster Rouser:
This blog features random musings about my interests in human rights, women's rights, gender, transitional justice, and political theory. The earlier posts in this blog (from February to March 2010) chronicled my time at the WILPF (Women's International League for Peace and Freedom) Practicum in Advocacy at the UNCSW (United Nations Commission on the Status of Women). Posts from May to June 2011 chronicled my time spent researching women's organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Posts starting in October 2011 will chronicle my time as a Fulbright U.S. student in Rwanda.
