NEW YORK — Lily Greenberg Call was always passionate about the political process. As a high school freshman, she looked forward to her class on international politics and guerrilla warfare.
Though most of the other students in the class were seniors or boys, Call was unfazed.
But during a heated discussion, someone said, “No one cares about your opinion, Lily, you’re a girl.”
Taken aback, Call, now a senior at the San Diego Jewish Academy, said, “I was shocked because that mentality was not something I was raised with. I had never been told I couldn’t do something because I’m a girl.”
