Why do adults keep getting dolls and pink clothes for girls? What do people think about women soccer players? Are men always expected to pay on the first date? Gender stereotypes continue to exist in modern society, but are there generational differences in views on gender roles? In celebration of International Women’s Day 2023  and to explore some food for thought on this year’s theme #EmbraceEquity, we have asked our Gen X staff and Gen Z students to share their take on society’s expectations for men and women. Watch the video to find out if their everyday experiences resonate with you!
