Last week, the International Business Times wrote a piece on the NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase. If you missed it, you can still read it on the IBT website. From the article,
“The goal of the event is to encourage mutual respect between the sexes,” Karin Agness, the founder of NeW, said.
After all, isn’t respect what women were hoping the feminist movement would bring them in the first place? And isn’t it an age-old lesson of life that the way we treat others will come back to us?
In spite of what some may think, respect is possible, gentlemen do exist, and their presence on campus makes a difference for both women and men.
Respect tends to bring about more respect. So, perhaps those in the feminist movement who are rightfully concerned about the continued progress of women could take a lesson from the women at NeW and strive to offer the same respect to men they’re hoping to gain for themselves, as women equal to men in dignity and worth.
The NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase is currently running on our NeW Facebook Page. Young women have nominated nine young men who exemplify chivalrous behavior and promoting mutual respect between the sexes. If you haven’t voted, there’s still time! The NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase will run until March 31. For more rules and information about the Gentlemen’s Showcase, please visit our events page.
