Our campaign reached a lot students at our school, and we think our future events will keep momentum going.
110 students attended our screening of Miss Representation
92 students participated in our community circle discussions about gender and media
380 students took our survey on how gender stereotypes affect their lives. We intend to give a follow up survey after our martial-arts/yoga event next week.
In results from our initial survey:
the majority of males thought gender stereotypes affected them negatively.
female students were less likely to think that gender stereotypes affected them negatively.
the majority of domestic work done at home was by a female adult.
the majority of female students did not feel safe when alone in public. The majority of male students did feel safe when alone in public.
the majority of all students were more likely to shame a female peer for being sexually active than a male peer.
9 teachers participated in our campaign and provided interviews for our instagram.
We inspired the school faculty to have a school-wide community circle on gender after the success of our event.
A teacher came up to us after our community-circle event and told us that one of his students had attended, who had been struggling with understanding why girls were offended when he said sexist things. After watching the film and participating in the community circle, that student said he finally understood what everybody had been trying to tell him.
