WO=MEN on USA university blog
During the NGO Consultation Day, we met an inspiring student, Mariam Yaqub from Lehigh University who got inspired by our message that gender stereotypes need to be challenged, and that men need to be proactively involved in solutions to violence and discrimination against girls. After Joni's statement, she came towards us to ask for more information. She interviewed us over some drinks, which in the end became a pleasant exchange of experiences. You can read her blog with her reflection on our conversation here. Great to meet other activist youth at the CSW!!
