Continuing their mission to focus on director-driven projects, Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves (director) produced “The Batman”: a dark, thrilling detective-noir film that is unlike any iteration of the Caped Crusader that has ever reached the silver screen.

Julian-Alexandre W., journalist

Just last month, on Feb. 23 , GWUOHS had its very first KIND Campaign Assembly–big kudos to the Women’s Empowerment Club for hosting this event to promote girl-on-girl bullying awareness. This movement has grown as very popular forms of bullying amongst females such as indirect bullying, have grown to account for nearly 18% of all cases of bullying. Moreover, since the COVID-19 pandemic, the new popularity in online schooling, and a general increase in online activity, cyberbullying has risen dramatically. In a 2021 national representative sample, 23.7% of females in a 2,546-person sample, between the ages of 13 and 17, faced some sort of cyberbullying to their respective gender category. The issue of girl-on-girl bullying is widespread and non-exclusive to our school environment.
