Chino High School is the first high school in California to introduce R.O.X. R.O.X stands for Ruling Our Experiences . R.O.X brings awareness to girls, and how they should not be treated less than what their abilities are. This program originated in Ohio. R.O.X is inspired by a book by Lisa Hinkelman called Girls Without Limits.

Four hundred and twenty-seven surveys where taken at Chino High on the school climate. The purpose of these surveys was to see how leadership, and social media has an affect upon girls.

Ms. Johnson, the leader of the program at Chino shared with The Lariat, “Something’s girls are hearing and how they are being treated is no longer okay.” R.O.X is meant for all girls with all different types of personalities. This program is meant to bring girls up and stand together to fight for their experiences as girls, and of course to help raise their self-esteems.

To be a R.O.X member, you must be a girl that is willing to dedicate time and effort into the program. There will be 20 sessions, 10 in the fall about personal safety and 10 in the spring about self defense.

This year R.O.X has been filled up to capacity. The next sign ups will be the 2018-19 school year in August, to sign up contact Ms. Johnson in the counseling office. Please support R.O.X by wearing hot pink and black on Thursdays. Spread the word!
