Introduction to Gender

In the same way that an optical illusion exposes our tendency to see what we expect to see, this lecture challenges participants´ preconceived notions of gender by deconstructing gender binaries and stereotypes and exploring the complexities of gender as a social institution. The content is offered free of charge as it provides the foundational definitions and theories forming the infrastructure on which to frame your understanding of gender. In order to think in complex ways about gender, this lecture will also introduce you to the concept of “intersectionality”-a term that teaches us always to see gender as it interconnects with issues of racism, classism, heterosexism, and gender identity. The ideas in this Introduction will be essential for guiding your therapeutic work with women as they work to transcend gender role expectations in search of truer selves.
