Our theme for Women's History Month 2013 is Transcending Gender, which will encourage the campus community to think about the various ways in which the traditional gender and sex binaries (masculine/feminine and male/female) are being challenged. As a culture, we still tend to believe that those binaries are rooted in natural differences, and we then tend to justify a wide range of gender-based judgments and practices upon that belief. The repercussions of these assumptions extend to homophobia and gender coercion in the case of intersex persons. We have planned a series of events to get us to think critically about how gender norms are currently enforced, and what alternatives might be. Please click here to view the schedule of events.
