Thank you for joining us and for sharing your views in another rich and lively debate @SWSCmedia. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Gender is a huge and complex topic that intersects with every phase of life.
Gender is carved deeply in our identities and individual and social psyche. Gender is expressed is expressed in appearances, performance, social structures, hierarchies, thoughts, words, nonverbal cues, and the way we negotiate space and proximities. Research indicates that the effect of gender is so profound that even the most staunch feminists’ thinking is subject to gender bias and while we strive for better understanding gender and challenging the structures of patriarchy, we are constrained by our gendered thinking. This, once again, highlights the importance of reflective thinking and a self-aware reflexive engagement. Since we cannot do away with our gendered and coloured perceptual lens… we can strive to gain awareness of its filtering effect.
