The 2022 Dismantle Patriarchy Contest challenged high school students to use their creative talents to Dismantle Patriarchy through the use of visual art, music, essay, story, poetry, video or photography to envision how they might change the larger societal system of patriarchy and create an accepting society. Ten winners were chosen and received a $1,000 prize. Winners were honored at our 2022 Youth Summit: Youth Rising for Gender Equity in April.
