Barnard Girls of 2013 Step Out of the Shadows

It should really make "boss."

Gbowee rearranged and plus two e’s makes Bwog

Yesterday afternoon and what turned into evening the Barnard Class of 2013 made it across the stage at Radio City Music Hall, and pranced out into the pouring rain with pride.

This year’s ceremony was no last year, if for no other reason than that graduates assembled after 5:30 in the morning. Resilient in the face of flash flooding and a start later than expected, graduates and their families filled Radio City to celebrate the strong, bold and beautiful.

Commencement speaker Leymah Gbowee advised graduates to “step out of the shadows,” if for no other reason than to inspire those girls who come after them to do the same. It’s safe to say that the girls who came across the stage after her were pretty inspired themselves by Girls creator Lena Dunham, who sat by to receive a Medal of Distinction and partake in selfies, hugs, and also receive some numbers along the way.

Bwog wishes a well-deserved congratulations to the Barnard Class of 2013, and Leymah, since we know you’re reading this, the B-W-O-G L-O-V-E-S your little bit of crazy.
