Gender Socialization

What does gender mean? How is gender socially constructed and reinforced in culture? This facilitation dissects the cultural, social, and institutional constructions of what appropriate “masculinities” and “femininities” are, as well as how those binaries enact violence on those who do not fall within (but rather in-between) the binaries of male/female, masculine/feminine. This discussion encourages participants to engage with their own bias and experiences, as well as to unpack deeply embedded notions of gender in American culture and the consequences of it. Length: 1.5 hours
