THE (IN)SANITY OF GENDER

A Glasgow Feminist Collective Fundraiser

A Lecture by Sabrina Chap, Editor of 'Live Through This' Anthology on Creativity and Self-Destruction

The hysterical woman, the strong and silent man, how do

these stereotypes affect our self-destructive behaviors?

History, hormones, cultural norms, sexual desires- all have

their own separate affect on how we see ourselves, and

how the world sees us. When sanity has long been defined

by staying inside our gender norms, how do we define our

own version of sane? In this workshop, we will look at

how sanity has been defined for genders throughout

history, how it’s being marketed to to us today, and how we

can distinguish the roles we’ve been given.
