Breaking the Box of Masculinity

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 2:00pm to 2:50pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Duck Nest (041)
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

The concept of binary gender (masculinity/femininity) is a socially constructed idea. In other words socially acceptable messages, images, actions, and unspoken rules of what it means to be a man or women come from our experiences, and interactions with others. In this workshop we will discuss and challenge conscious or unconscious messages, beliefs, and biases that influence our perspectives of masculinity. Together we will create a more inclusive, holistic, and healthy perspective to what it means to be a man.
