Jocelyn Sims's Biography

Jocelyn Sims is a media professional with seven years experience working in the trade publishing industry as a writer and editor. As a Korean-American feminist activist, she believes that media representations of women—from issues of violence against women to the many portrayals of women of color—need to be reexamined, rethought and reconfigured.

A part-time graduate student in the Interdisciplinary Studies at DePaul University in Chicago, Sims is passionate about the many issues that women—particularly women of color—face on many fronts. Her Master’s degree focuses on writing and women’s and gender studies, with a focus on media and gender stereotypes. She was recently awarded DePaul’s Women’s and Gender Studies Department’s Ballenger Scholarship.

Sims is a former board member and current active member of the Chicago chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW). As a board member, she led the chapter’s Violence Against Women Team and helped manage its newsletter. Sims believes in the power of dreams, the power that passion and beliefs can stir. She’s a poet, a runner, a friend and a survivor. She is honored to be a part of the WIMN’s Voices group blog.
