The video caused a firestorm last year after it was called “worse for women than Donald Trump” by an opinion writer.
6. The sisters of Delta Gamma at Ohio University had the idea for the shoot after seeing a few other sororities do similar projects, senior member Elizabeth Harris told BuzzFeed News.
7. Harris said she thinks sorority members are stereotyped because people think they are “spoiled” and “only care about partying,” but that’s been the opposite of her experience.
“Our chapter is full of so many diverse people,” she said.
9. The sorority members asked for volunteers for the shoot, and junior member Kaitlin Hatton took the pictures.
10. Hatton, who is studying photography and shoots for a campus magazine, told BuzzFeed News the project was near and dear to her heart because she also stereotyped sorority girls before she became a member.
“I found all of [the stereotypes] to be completely false and eye-opening,” she said.
12. The photos demonstrate the sisters’ accomplishments, like one member who interned in New York City as a rising sophomore.
13. And others discussed their future plans, which don’t involve an “Mrs.” degree.

18. The pictures have inspired many on Facebook, and Harris said the members have heard from people of all ages from across the country.
“We had no idea it would reach so many people across the country,” Harris said.
20. She added it has been amazing for their chapter to have such a positive impact on other women. “I’m really happy with how it turned out,” she said.
