Breaking Down Gender Stereotypes

In a society that has recently turned the clock back 50 plus years with its newest elected President, it’s important that women take a stand against gender norms. Luckily, Loyola University Chicago has a club on campus that encourages women to do just that. The Women’s Project is an activist and academic club that fights to redefine society’s views of what it means to be a woman in 2016.  Run Your World recently had the opportunity to sit down with scholar member and senior Lauren Groberski.

We want to know what you do to encourage gender equality! Comment below or follow us on Twitter at @RunYourWorldLUC!
