 Women as Role Models

Following years of subservience under the patriarchal society of men, women are finally able to exercise their right to act as role models to the youth in broad daylight. However, while the concept of sexism was outlawed way back in the 60’s, it is still instilled within the beliefs and temperament of countless men around the world. That does not stop women from standing up for themselves, according to two distinct women from Pleasanton who have had varying experiences as leaders in their community. In this episode, Parth Mishra (’23) interviews these two ladies in order to understand their view on the issue, as well as their opinion on the future of leading the younger generations.
