Gender neutral parenting
Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (BST)
Essex, United Kingdom
Dr Chrissie Rogers will facilitate a talk by Dr Tam Sanger and Jay Stewart co-founder of Gendered Intelligence on Gender neutral parenting.
This talk will stimulate a debate about children and gender and will examine questions such as: Is a stable gender identity central to children's development of a sense of self or can the reinforcement of gender stereotypes be damaging? Is gender neutral parenting experimenting with children's lives or allowing them more freedom to be who they want to be? They will also examine the practice of gender neutral parenting, a hotly debated and for some a highly contentious topic.
Dr Tam Sanger works in the Childhood and Youth Research Institute at Anglia Ruskin University and is researching trans people's identities. Her publications include Trans People's Partnerships: Towards an Ethics of Intimacy. Jay Stewart runs the organisation Gendered Intelligence, which was set up to advance knowledge about gender and how it impacts on people's lives. They offer support to trans youth and workshops and training on gender issues.
Light refreshments will be provided from 7:00pm and there will be plenty of time for discussion both during and after the lecture.
