Here, women are the ones in charge. Smith College, that bastion of female education, has ensured that this town is filled with women who can do anything. Men are obsolete. Women here paint their own houses and fix their own cars, run their own businesses, grow their own vegetables, write their own novels and screenplays, create their own calculus equations...the list goes on. In my three years at Smith College, I have always loved Northampton and its independent vibe. Now, returning from four months in a repressive male-dominated society, I think that Northampton is the most refreshing place on Earth.
