Changing Gender Roles (series)
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 child rearing, 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. The May 9 lecture starts early at 9:30 a.m. Join us for lunch after the April 11th lecture! Meet and socialize with other OLLI members over lunch in the lobby immediately following the lecture! The cost is $10. You can register for the lunch online, in-person, or using a registration form. Register for lunch by April 5th. • April 4th: Eve and Her Sisters, Rev. Kenneth W.
