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.
