Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Incorporated prides itself on it’s klassy and sophistikated women. Our tag is “The Essence of Feminism”.
I am the first to say that I hate stereotypes and there is no such thing as the “typical sorority girl” and women in sororities are not just carbon copies of each other. So when people ask me why then did I join my particular org or how do I defend our tag and such.
Simply with an open mind.
The Essence of Feminism.
There are many different levels of femininity. I have sorors who wear at least 4 inch heels every day. I have sorors who wear flats everyday. I have sorors who will never be seen in a pair of heels. I have sorors who wear skirts and dresses and make up and waist length hair. I have sorors who wear hoodies and basketball shorts. I have sorors who are a mixture of both and fall in between.
Feminism and Femininity are not concrete things. There is not only one way to show your femininity.
I hate the idea that sorority girls are stuck up, preppy, i’m better than you, type women.
Yes we love that we can say that all of us are classy, sophisticated, women. But we are also dynamic women. No two of us are exactly alike.
My psisters are nurses, teachers, soldiers, entrepreneurs, students, wives, mothers, photographers. We are heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian. We are skinny, thick, plus size. We have smokers we have non smokers. We are permed and pressed and we are natural and kinky. We are Black, White, Latina, and more.
What I love about Greek Life is the diversity within it. There is no one thing you can say a sorority girl is except for dedicated and committed.
There are sororities meant for strictly academics, that are strictly religious, strictly community service, strictly socializing/partyting, and there are sororities that mix two or more purposes.
There are no exceptions to the stereotypes you hear. The stereotypes are the unfortunate exceptions.
