A Message from Humanities 8 on Election 2016

Anesi Ojior ’21, on behalf of her fellow Humanities 8 students, sent this message to the Stoneleigh-Burnham community on the eve of Election Day 2016:

“As many of you know, the election for the United States president for 2016-2020 is tomorrow! This has been the first time a woman from a major political party has been the nominee for their respective party. To celebrate this as feminists and/or believers in gender equality, tomorrow we are asking people to wear white. The color white references the long fight women waged to gain the right to vote, an official color of their movement, often worn by suffragists in protests in the early 1900s. It is now 2016 and we have come from not having the ability to vote, to having the possibility of having a female as our next president. #wearwhitetovote Thank you! – Humanities 8 CDCIA”

Humanities 8 students wear white on Election Day 2016.
