Ironically named after the age-old sexist red-carpet question; at WAYW, we want to know the person underneath the clothes. What makes women tick, and what ticks them off. Who women are: not what women wear.

 

We aim to challenge gender stereotypes and discuss gender equality and discrimination issues in our videos, blog and podcast (coming soon). 

Check out our videos below:
