MacArthur Room — Rattling Gender Constructs

This lecture and group discussion course deals with the ever changing climate of gender and diversity. Have you ever found your self in a situation where you did not know what pro-nouns to use? Gender identity is internal. It is, simply, the gender with which you identify. It’s the word (or words) that you could use to describe yourself that simply make sense to you. It is Deeply-rooted, and a central part of many people’s senses of self. How do we brake old gender constructs and make safe spaces?
