Event description
Margaret Thatcher once said, “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

About this Event

Today's discussion event is a deep dive into the subject of power and the sexes: whether this is in relationships, in the workplace, etc...Gender and power are intrinsically linked; understanding this can help us understand both concepts better.

The need for power and self actualisation is a basic human need, and how it is manifested through the sexes creates the reality we take part in globally. Power in our society is currently looked upon as a means to control others, whether it is through influence, money, beauty, fame etc...

Gender relations are power relations. Often what it means to be a 'woman' is to be powerless (quiet, obedient, accommodating). A ‘real man’, by contrast, is powerful (outspoken, in control, able to impose his will), particularly in relation to women. These gender roles tend to perpetuate the power inequalities that they are based on.

Gender shapes institutions and how they affect the distribution of power.

Gender shapes how we understand what ‘power’ is in the first place.

Just a few ideas we will be exploring:

•Is equality between the sexes ever achievable?

•Why is there a long standing belief that men are the stronger sex: smarter, better, more successful, stronger than women, and therefore are in a higher pecking order in society, thereby creating the emergence of a patriarchy?

•What is the cost we pay as a global society for the perpetuation of this imbalance of power?

•Can we re-envision a future where the balance of power can be levelled out and what might that look like?
