UIUC Students started this petition to University of Illinois at Urbana champaign

Ladies, how many times have you been at the gym and you see a man staring at your body, watching you workout, or even worse, mansplaining how to do a certain workout? Countless, right? This is why I think it's extremely important that the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign creates a space designated for women with cardio machines, free-weights, and lifting. One idea for this renovation would be to split up Gym 4 and make half of it a women's area, half for free use. I don't think this is too much to ask for from Campus Recreation, and it would also benefit their business because girls are opting out of going to the ARC simply because of the reasons stated and getting other gym memberships. 

Anyone is welcome to sign this petition, not just women. To the men who keep to themselves at the gym, we thank you. But you must realize that not every man is like this. It's a man's world and I'm not here for it! So let's make this change so that women and everybody who doesn't identify with the male gender can feel safe and more comfortable while working out. 

Thanks!
