Hacking at the Roots of Sexism: Destroying Sexism Through Day-to-Day Interaction

From: Jennifer B.
Sent on: Tuesday, January 7, 2014 10:13 AM

Join us for our next CFI-MI lecture on "Hacking at the Roots of Sexism" with Aubrey Adrianson.

Despite equality laws, there is still a prevailing attitude in society that certain things, thoughts, and actions are for women, and others are for men. These kinds of attitudes can pigeon hole and, subsequently, damage people, inhibiting personal freedom and individualism. Hacking at the Roots of Sexism explores different kinds of sexist activity that both men and women engage in, focusing primarily on sexist language. In her presentation, Aubrey Adrianson will explore how sexist language and cultural expectations damages both men and women. After that, she will discuss how we can change the way we talk and interact with others so to hack away at the sexism which appears in our day to day lives.
