Gender Equality: It Affects Us All
Why is gender equality an issue not everyone has to deal with? Rebecca Swityk, a grade 11 student at St. Peter the Apostle Catholic High School, has thought about this for ages. With a passion built from growing up as a female and living as a woman, and watching the way women are treated in sports and the media, Rebecca has objected to the differences in the ways her gender is treated versus that of her male counterparts. Throughout the years that she has been noting these differences, Rebecca has noticed that all empowered women have one thing in common: fearlessness!
Rebecca hopes to utilize her love of public speaking to inspire others to look at the world in different ways, and to seize the opportunity to break down gender barriers.
