Artistic Reflections on Binary Gender Norms
This project examines the problem of gender socialization as it begins in childhood. My campaign, Genderation, reflects the difficulties of discussing gender. It centers on parents, the key audience, in an informal way that does not put pressure on the task of raising a child with a healthy gender outlook. The book is divided into four sections: Gender, Recognizing Stereotypes, The Role of Parents, and Everyday Changes, which gradually inform the reader about the importance of learning about gender socialization and tips to bring healthy gender practices into their everyday lives.
Thesis completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Alfred University Honors Program.
