Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00 pm: Straightlaced – How Gender’s Got Us All Tied Up
A powerful documentary about the lives of teens and young adults as seen through the gender lens. Approaching society’s ideas and ideals of gender through clothes, sexuality, sports, dance, safety, consumerism and emotion, the film addresses the complexities of conceptions of masculinity and femininity for Generation Z. “From girls confronting popular messages about culture and body image, to boys who are sexually active just to prove they aren’t gay, the students in Straightlaced illustrate the toll that deeply held stereotypes and rigid gender policing have on all of our lives.”
