Artists for Social and Political Awareness (ASPA) present:
Unraveling Gender: a gender workshop and perfomance poetry presentation by Julia Serano.
Why do men and women seem to be so different? Why do women still report hitting a "glass ceiling" in their career at the same time that many men perceive a "crisis of masculinity" in our society? These and other questions will be addressed in "Unraveling Gender".
Presented by Julia Serano, a working scientist, successful writer, slam poet, and spoken word artist, this session has been presented at numerous colleges and conferences.
An unusual combination of educational lecture and entertainment allows Julia to effectively communicate many of the complex concepts of Women's and Gender Studies and debunk much of the "junk science" that plagues pop-culture's ideas of gender. Her charming and playful delivery allow
her to take on many of the myths and mysteries of perception in a presentation that combines elements of science, poetry and her one-woman show!
ASPA events are always free and open to the public!
