Blog Update

While the semester is coming to a close, I wanted to let all my readers know that while I will no longer be in the class this blog was created for after this week, I will continue to post on this blog about gender issues.

Hope you continue to read and follow!

Advocacy Project Update

Thanks so everyone who came out last week to the Quad and helped me out. The project went well. We got lots of looks from the tours for the incoming freshman but we talked to over 30 people which is great! We had lots of people who already knew about gender norms and we had some people stop by who hadn’t heard about gender norms. I think the biggest success of my project was hearing everyone’s different perspective and educating many people, even people who didn’t stop to get an interview because they were still listening as they were walking by. Stay tuned: in the next week I will post the video of my finished project here– it’s going to be awesome!

Thanks,

Sam

Advocacy Event: JMU Quad tomorrow 12-3!

If anyone is free tomorrow from 12-3: come be a part of my advocacy project.

I will be interviewing people about what they think about gender norms and how they defy them. You can either have a video interview or a picture taken with a statement on a whiteboard. I would love to hear what all of you have to say about gender norms and how they affect your daily life! All videos and pictures will be included into a final compilations video that will be posted on youtube and submitted in my portfolio.

Hope to see you all there!
