All volunteers are welcome! You can join an occasional Conversation or become a regular – there’s no pressure at this casual and enjoyable morning of discussion. Refreshments will be available.
COMING UP: Ambivalent Sexism
Friday 16 February 2024, 10:30am – 12:30pm
Sarah Calleja , counselling psychologist, will chair the discussion.
‘Women — you can’t live with them, and you can’t live without them.’ “This male quip captures something essential about the face of sexism: an ambivalence, or doubled-edged way of thinking, in which women are sometimes treated with contempt and sometimes adored. How can adoration qualify as sexism? I challenge you to take the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (<– click on the link) and explore the dual nature of prejudice toward women and afterward compare your level of sexism with the scores received by people from around the world.”
You’ll get the most out of the Conversation if you review the curated reference material in advance, but you can join the discussion even if you haven’t had time to preparation.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so you will be informed if a Conversation is cancelled.
