47. I've lived in Alabama for a little over a year

 

and culturally the South is VERY different than the rest of the US. I've lived all over the country. Women are VERY "feminine" here i.e., into traditional gender roles/mores and just very girly compared to the rest of the country.

Not sure if s/he was joking or not, but GummyBearz pretty much hit the nail on the head. I know several people that went to UA (I didn't) and from what I hear the women get "done up" to go to class...ie dressed up, lots of makeup, just the right shoes, hair styled. Sounds exhausting to go through that every day! But these particular types of women: upper class, sheltered etc are in these sororities and go to college to meet an upper class guy to marry and pump out babies with. Kind of a throwback to a different era and I can't relate, but I'm not going to judge.

I don't know what to make of the racial makeup here. Racism? or self-selection? The black women I know here wouldn't have wanted to join a sorority like this.
