Another Year of Sexist Signs for Female Frosh

August 29, 2016

It's the season when parents drop off sons and daughters to start their college educations. In recent years, one part of that season has been sexist signs that "welcome" women to campus by making jokes dropping off the women at fraternity houses. This year seems to be no exception. A sign at an off-campus house near the University of Cincinnati has prompted complaints and demands for punishment of those who live in the house, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. After photographs circulated on social media, the sign came down. The Student Government issued a statement saying that such signs are "misogynistic" and promote "a predatory environment."
