Gabriela Benitez Monroy, Glen Burnie High School, 9th Grade

Hey, I am a freshman BMAH student and really like the medical field.  I wanted to be a part of this forum because debating and discussing are things I like to do.  When it comes to Women’s Rights, it should be able to be heard. Especially in the STEM program, many girls want to be engineers and join the medical field in the STEM part of it and for them to get dragged down by saying they can’t do that is wrong.

I have always been an outspoken person and speaking up for those who don't feel like they had a voice. I wanted to be apart of this forum because I feel women are so underestimated in "male dominated" fields and I wanted to bring to the conversation to light on breaking gender roles society has made for centuries.

Caroline Finn, South River High School, 10th Grade

Hi, I'm Caroline Finn, a sophomore in the STEM program at South River High, and I am excited to be a part of this Let's Talk Justice panel regarding women's rights. A fun fact about me is that my feminist role models include Ruth Bader-Ginsberg and Angela Davis. I wanted to be a part of this forum because Women's rights and the effects of the patriarchy is a topic I am greatly passionate about. Being an aspiring woman engineer, I have seen first-hand the oppressive mindset that has led to a gender inequality that has endured in America. Wanting to investigate this issue, I started the club Femgineers (to promote female engineers) at South River. In this club, we are working to combat the stereotypes that have led to an incredible lack of representation of women in the STEM fields, and especially engineering. The opportunity to spread awareness about a movement such as Women's Rights and the oppressive nature of the patriarchy is one that I am truly thrilled to participate in, and I look forward to a productive and candid discussion!

Princess Tatsi, Old Mill High School, 11th Grade

I love to read and write. I also love watching Ted X talks and discovering new psychology podcasts. I wanted to take part of this forum because discussing Women's rights is something I have always been passionate about ever since it occurred to me, after an eye opening discussion with my male cousins, that men still don't understand the danger and insecurity that comes with being a woman in our flawed society.

My name is Megha Thomas and I am a junior at South River High School. Outside of school, I love Bollywood dancing and tutoring (virtually of course)! I am currently working with a fifth grader and a girl from Ukraine. I am excited to serve as a panelist on this forum because women's rights deserves a county level platform for discussion. I would love to hear experiences, concerns, and hopes regarding women's rights from other students.
