Join us for a facilitated discussion about the way sexism impacts our lives. Each month we’ll have a specific topic to focus on to share experiences, strategies and actionable suggestions.

March Discussion Topic: Intersectionality of Race, Age, and Gender

Respect for the diversity of experience and ideas is built into the foundation of the Bitch Stigma group, and for many members it’s not just gender that creates the stigma, but other elements as well. Agism and racial stereotypes can add an additional layer of judgement and backlash for a woman’s “attitude.”

Conversation Starters: (please remember these are just a starting point for the discussion!)

• How do age and race impact and add to gender stereotypes?

• Have you had experiences related to age, race and gender?

What are ways that you’ve handled situations related to gender/race or gender/age?
