什么是性别?什么是性?我们确定一个人性别的标准是什么?我们的社会只能有两种性别吗?

什么是性别歧视?当我们称呼某人是“娘娘腔”/“女汉子”/“绿茶婊”/“直男癌”/“女权婊”的时候,我们又在谈论些什么?

性别是人类社会中最重要的社会建构之一,在很大程度上定义了我们的外表、言行举止、职业学术方向、娱乐方式,乃至爱情和家庭生活。如果你对以上任意一个问题感兴趣,如果你想探索自己的身份,探索性别是如何影响了你和世界上千千万万的人的人生。

The course will introduce basic sociological concepts through the discussion of gender and examine gender through the lens of social construction.

We will look at how gender roles and ideas, rather than something innate and immutable, are constantly subjected to larger societal and historical changes. We will learn to identify various forms of gender inequalities and explore how gender inequalities can result in gender stereotypes and in turn be reinforced by them.

The course is structured around the following topics:
1) nature vs. nurture
2) gender inequalities in workplace and family
3) gendered parenting and education
4) family violence and sexual assault
5) masculinity
6) gender in media
7) feminism and stigmatization of feminism
