A Group Of Sorority Girls Are Fighting Back Against People Who Think They Are "Spoiled" Partiers

"Society says sorority girls are tall, blonde, and perfect, but I am who I am."

The video caused a firestorm last year after it was called "worse for women than Donald Trump" by an opinion writer.

But now, one sorority is trying to fight the negative stereotypes against Greek sisterhood. They have released a photo series to try and highlight all of the amazing things their members do that make them anything but a stereotype.

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.

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.

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.

"We had no idea it would reach so many people across the country," Harris said.
