BAILEY HALL—Tantalized by the guaranteed crowds of women, Richard March ‘19 snagged a ticket to attend #MeToo founder Tarana Burke’s talk in Bailey Hall.
“Yeah, I’m pretty good at predicting these things, and there’ll be loads of ladies just waiting for me,” said March. “I grabbed a tic—that’s short for ticket—for my main wingman, too.”
“I’m incredibly excited for this talk to hear about Burke’s activism and the story of the #MeToo movement,” said Andrea Nandi ‘17, a budding young activist. “I’m proud of the Cornell campus using its platform like this—tickets are completely sold out!”
“There can’t be that many women without me there to help balance ‘em out. I really value women, if you catch my drift,” said March, audibly winking. “My strategy is to round some of them up before the talk, before the empowerment.”
March plans to further brag about his heightened social awareness to all of his female classmates on Monday, while brandishing a new ‘Times Up’ pin.
