My driving question that prompted my project was how could I challenge gender inequality in the grace church school or elsewhere. The thought process behind this topic was that I am very interested in social justice and feel very strongly that gender inequality is one of the biggest issues of our time. I wanted to make it known that this was an issue within our school community as well as the global one. At first my idea was very similar to the gender equity club so my idea turned into an affinity space. While working on the affinity space I registered our school for Girl Up which makes us a chapter in their global organization to help girls around the world. My goal was to create this safe space of self identifying females to come to when they needed support or wanted to be part of the space as a whole. Then it came to the time when I had to narrow down my big picture and realized that fighting gender inequality isn’t the main goal of my project. The main goal of my project was to create a space for people who it wasn’t provided for. My main goal morphed into a resource for people like me at our school who wanted to provide a space like this for their peers. To create affinity spaces at schools is so important because everyone has many identities but rarely ever get to connect with people who share the same ones. I think this project will go further than just fighting one issue because it will give a template for creating effective change in the school for its students for every issue or identity. I will continue the part of my project that is maintaining the Female Affinity space for the rest of my time at Grace because I want to show that change is possible and attainable.
