Gender bias is everywhere. From jokes about Hillary Clinton on social media to comments from friends and family, it’s on the presidential stage and in daily life. And for three Chatham University students, the topic is something they think about a lot. “We need to be able to identify and address it and figure out where the root of it is coming from,” Maria Taylor, 19, told The Incline.
Tuesday is the day. You *finally* get to cast your vote. And then it’s time to wait. Why not watch the results roll in at an election night watch party? Some parties offer drinks, others give you one more chance to take a stance against a certain presidential candidate. Oh, and The Incline is having a watch party too, with drink specials and election-themed Cards Against Humanity.
