Loosening the Gender Girdle: How Gender Affects You

Date: February 14, 2019

Time: 7:30-9 p.m.

Location: Stackhouse Theater

Gender rules are often not spelled out. More often, they surround us, but are hidden, like the electric fences used to keep dogs within a designated boundary. Some social rules and expectations become clear only–or especially–when they are broken, and we witness how the transgressor is treated. Where are the boundaries? What is being threatened? What is being maintained? What can we do? We will look at the ways in which we are limited by a rigid and limited binary understanding of gender. Please join us, and bring your gender with you!
