Sunday Assembly Reading
Sunday Assembly Reading - Gender Roles
Delusions of Gender - Starting even from before birth, stereotypes around gender influence how our own parents think of us and treat us
Time & Location
21 Oct 2018, 10:45
Sunday Assembly Reading, 93 Chatham Street, Reading, UK
About The Event
This month we welcome Nikki Dancy, GMB Trade Union Regional Organiser, speaking about the genetic roots of sexism. Starting even from before birth, stereotypes around gender influence how our own parents think of us and treat us, and this subconscious 'programming' and filtering continues every day through our lives in countless tiny interactions with the wider world. This talk does not seek to definitively answer the age-old question of whether gender difference is entirely nature or nurture, but instead takes you through some of the fascinating experiments, research and studies that show how bias happens, how we can begin to combat the implicit bias of others and also how to combat it in ourselves.
Then add some great songs, sung with The Word Of Bob, and all the other fun things that make a Sunday Assembly.
Doors open at 30 mins before the Assembly starting. The best way to meet new people is to come early.
