It can be interesting and freeing to become more aware of the areas where we don’t fit the gender binary. In fact, isn’t it funny and so completely obvious how much gender socialization doesn’t actually serve us because it’s NOT us??? There’s not one of us that completely fits into patriarchal ideas of “woman/man”, “feminine/masculine”.
Cam comprehensively unpacked this topic in their Feminist Coach Track class on gender, patriarchy and coaching.
In their class, Cam covered the following topics.
- Gender from a queer feminist anthropological lens
- What gender is and how it has been constructed
- How we have been conditioned by the gender binary
- The difference and connection between what we think of as “biological sex”, gender and sexuality
- Judith Butler’s notion that “sex” is as socially constructed as gender, and queer theory’s questioning of gender essentialism
- Breaking down gender identity, expression, expectations and norms
- The different messages you received growing up and now based on gender, and how you’ve internalized them about yourself and others
- Internalized oppression + freeing yourself from gender beliefs that don’t serve you
- Your vision for the future of gender
- Cam’s “Prefigurative Gender Deconstruction”
- Living in the here-and-now as we want the future to be
- Practical actions you can begin taking now in your coaching practice, with your clients, and in your business to disrupt patriarchy and the gender binary
Those who tuned in to the class said it was “so informative and mind-blowing in a personal sense, but also in terms of how I work and coach clients” and resulted “in me taking immediate action in updating my business systems and processes.”
