The fat man and the skinny wife.
The damsel in distress.
The “one-woman-maybe-two-in-the-whole-damn-film” trend.
What has Hollywood learned in the past 70 years that has transformed or transcended society?
And what have women and men done to turn around sexism against women, men, the transgender community, sexual tropes, and the balance of discrimination in music videos, sitcoms, video games, and commercials?
Join Gretchen Kelly and me as we navigate all the aspects of PopSexism in culture and society.
Talk to you Monday night! 7:30 PM EST.
The #StopSexism Social Interest Group aims to address the issues of everyday sexism, identify contributing factors, and discuss the implications and effects of sexism. We will hold weekly calls by phone, and together will explore ideas to combat inequality, gender bias, and society’s expectations.
The weekly conference calls will be avenue for deeper conversation and for coming up with innovative plans to counter sexism on the ground at the grassroots level. Weekly conference calls take place every Monday at 7:30 EST.
To join the weekly calls you will need to join The Good Men Project as a Gold or Platinum member. Not a member? Register below!
This is the first of many #ThisIsHowSexismEnds prompts, essays, podcasts, memes, interviews, reviews, and articles over the next month that will focus on sexism, gender bias, misogyny, and ending prejudice against women as well as ending toxic hypermasculinity against men (and the overlap attitudes against all of us).
