Gender Roles Affect Everyone: New Blog Series

Gender Roles Affect Everyone: New Blog Series

Aug 04, 2014

Gender is a complicated word that has very real impacts in our society. Due to its complexities, we here at the NCCJ will break it down little by little, first focusing on gender roles and the affect they have on everyone. This is not to say that by understanding gender roles you understand all the intricacies of gender and its societal impacts – however it is a launching point.

To explore Gender Roles we will be doing a series that will focus on four areas of gender performativity: School, Toys, Clothes/Beauty and Sports. The series will be in this order: Female Toys, Male Toys, Female Academics/School, Male Academics/School, Female Sports, Male Sports, Female Clothes/Beauty and end with Male Clothes/Beauty. At this point it does not include gender non-conforming or transgender perspectives. We are excited to get the personal perspectives of some our youth on this topic and look forward to hearing your comments.

It’s important to first distinguish that “gender” is different than “sex.”  In short, sex refers to your biological differences, which is equal to male and female. And gender is a social construct that society reinforces through assigning roles, activities, expectations and behaviors to males and females and labeling them “masculine” or “feminine.” Gender is not only a social construct but also a performativity – behavior creates your gender. For example when someone says, “walk like a man,” or “throw like a girl” a certain image comes to mind – that is a performance of gender.  No one is born knowing how to “walk like a man,” or “throw like a girl,” they are taught what that looks like and either embody it or not. This series will talk about how the social construction and performativity of gender has an impact on all of us. 

The National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ) does work on gender throughout the year. We specifically cover sexism and genderism through our bulletins (which can be found here on sexism and here on genderism) and through workshops done at ANYTOWN and in our Youth Action Coalition (YAC). In the past we have also visited Action Clubs at school to do workshops and done workshops for organizations or companies through our fee for service program.
