Changing Gender Roles
Feminist inquiry in the mid twentieth century showed us how profoundly society is structured by gender. The constraints that have traditionally shaped roles are changing broadly and rapidly. Many refuse to see themselves labeled by gender or assigned stereotypical roles. Change has come in childrearing, income distribution, and even long-held male religious roles. The media reflects these societal changes as male and female roles are no longer distinct. No longer are women only depicted as sexually vulnerable, men are not always aggressive, and warrior women have joined forces with heroic men. The twenty-first century finds the male/female binary under scrutiny. In this series we explore the status of this discussion. May 9 lecture starts at 9:30 a.m.
