You have been invited to speak on a student panel at Montgomery College about raising awareness on campus about the intersectionality of aging and gender, particularly as it relates to inequality and other social problems on college campuses. During your five-minute presentation, you are asked to specifically address these issues within the context of Montgomery College. Using your personal experience of studying on a college campus, such as Montgomery College, please address the following questions and how you would discuss them as a panel member. The questions are:
- What do you personally believe the root causes of discrimination and prejudice specific to gender and aging are?
- Does gender-based and/or age-based inequality exist on campus? If so, how so? If not, why not?
- How does inequality of aging and gender manifest itself on campus? Are there any examples you can you identify in which such inequalities have been observed and/or experienced?
- What do you propose is necessary to address such inequalities on campus? How can your remedy or solution be carried out or implemented?
