In recent years, the conversation around changing gender dynamics and achieving gender equality has shifted.
The notions of masculinity and femininity are being challenged, overturned, and evolved to allow individuals to express their true self.
However, most of the gender stereotypes, normative roles, ways of being and legacy mindsets about our gender identities shaped by socio-cultural processes, put men and women on opposing sides rather than encouraging a mixture of both male and female traits.
Such antagonistic dynamic is downright disrespectful to both genders and doesn’t reflect the reality of our lives as multidimensional human beings.
This discussion is an attempt to reframe our past experiences and flush our residual misconceptions from our collective system to find a way to rebalance our relationships with our ideas of gender. We will aim to find answers to what it means to be a man and a woman in the 21st century in a way that reflects our individual selves as human beings.
