The Revolt

This is a past event.

Whether a woman is a famous actor, tech trailblazers or in any industry for that matter, gender inequality seems to be embedded into the fabric of our nation. In recent years, a number of movements such as #MeToo and #TimesUp have been at the forefront of speaking out against patriarchy, sexual advances and abuse in various spaces, and other systemic inequalities in the workplace. However, this isn’t new. The first Women’s Rights Movement in the United States spawned in New York in 1848. Focal question: It’s been well over 150 years since women began pushing for gender equality. Why haven’t we achieved it?
