What is Gender? Gender Roles and Identities around the World
Male? Female? Nonbinary? In recent years, the perspectives on gender have shifted. It is now understood that gender is not necessarily determined by biological sex and that everyone should have the right to feel comfortable in their bodies and express themselves accordingly. Increasingly, gender is also seen as a spectrum rather than a polar opposition.
Despite this idea being fairly new to the Western world, we can find evidence of third and fourth genders all over the world in every period of human history. At this event, we will take a closer look at the history of gender and its influence on our society today.
