Men make up 80% of congress, which means they have the majority vote on issues that directly affect women. This EPIC high school teacher is on a mission to show his male students what it feels like for the women in congress who don't have an equal say on policies that specifically affect females. In a vote about school policies, the tables have turned... 80% female students and 20% male students vote on policies such as reduced dance ticket prices for women and location of men's lockers. How do the male students feel when they are outnumbered and outvoted? #congress #genderequality #feminism
