Just this past Tuesday, I did a Girls Fight Back program at Clemson University in South Carolina.  It was a Panhellenic program attended by hundreds of sorority women.  As a Tri-Sigma, I adore speaking to Greek audiences.  Yes, there is a lot of baggage that comes with going Greek and there are tons of stereotypes, but when you really think about it, sorority women have made the incredible choice to build up other women.  In our society, which thrives on tearing others down, these women come together to grow and learn as sisters.  Now is it perfect?  Of course not. There are always going to be certain schools or chapters who perpetuate the stereotypes and give all Greek organizations a bad rap, but the majority of sorority women I know and those I meet on the road with GFB, are a part of the system because they want to become better people and they want to help their sisters become the best they can be.  The women I spoke to and laughed with at Clemson truly exemplified what it means to be a sisterhood.  The room pulsed with girl power and I felt an instant bond with each of you.  Thanks for making my final program of the semester a truly memorable one!
