About This Project

The word FEMININE is embedded with social conditioning. The varying perspectives imposed by socialized understanding of “feminine” presents a problem. In exploring gender associations, feminine definitions include diminutive words such as passivity, deference, and succorance. Synonyms are acquiescence, docility, and obedience. This is not my feminine experience. In my practice, I revolt consciously against boundaries. Feminine, defined as, “having qualities or appearance traditionally associated with women especially delicacy and prettiness” while masculine “having qualities appropriate to or usually associated with men especially strength and aggressiveness” relegates feminine into a submissive stance. I am interested in participating in reshaping gender socialization to encompass new definitions.
