He. She. Us. Explores Gender Roles, Issues

Posted: Updated:

He. She. Us.

It's the first of four exhibits put on by Ferris State's Harmony Project Committee, and they are hoping it starts a conversation.

The exhibit, which is in Helen Ferris Hall, centers around gender equality, stereotypes, and issues.

The committee felt as though it was an important topic to bring up, since gender roles are changing in politics, pop culture, and everyday life.

"I think because gender roles have been changing so much recently, there's a lot more information to present so I think this exhibit informs people who maybe have not considered their own gender identity, and supports others who have been for a while," says Emma Mentley, chair of the Harmony Project Committee.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.

It runs through Wednesday.
