#becauseofHer Campaign

Highlight the women in your life over Thanksgiving break!   Wharton, look around. Look at your family. Look at your classmates. Look at your friends. When we think about the women closest to us, of course we want gender equality in our world. The Wharton 22s invite you to join the #becauseofHer campaign - an opportunity for Wharton men (and women) to highlight important and influential women in your lives. For many of us, these are the people who have helped inspire us to join in partnership with women to pursue a world with greater gender equality.    Over the Thanksgiving break, take photos with the important and influential women in your lives (family, classmates, friends, former managers, etc), post to Facebook and Instagram (or email to us) with the hashtag #becauseofHer, and tell us how these women inspire you. If you can, proudly wear your Wharton 22s or WWIB t-shirt in the photo!  Check out the submissions>

Wharton Journal - Masculinity Under the Microscope

Wharton Journal - Masculinity Under the Microscope

While the film’s subjects at times constitute extreme examples of the consequences of hyper-masculinity – men facing life sentences at San Quentin prison for crimes committed as juveniles or at-risk youth in troubled communities – many of the points it raises about authenticity and the ways social forces constrain our expressions of gender can ring true even for Wharton MBAs.
