Why do you care about Women & Gender Studies?
I care about WGS because women are highly underrepresented in the media. I am a Communication Studies/Broadcast student, so I strive to use my knowledge of WGS to combat the unrealistic and inaccurate expectations and portrayals of women in the media.
Why should others care about Women & Gender studies?
It is important, now more than ever, to be inclusive of others. Our differences should be celebrated and respected. Women make up half of the population, and should be treated as equally as everyone else. These studies affect everyone.
What made you decide/want to pursue Women & Gender Studies?
I constantly am fed up and unimpressed with the media (and society’s) expectations of women. I hope to be a voice for those women as I pursue my career in Broadcast. I want to learn as much as I can so I can be an educated representative for women.
