Session 2: Pink hats... Examining Gender norms and Girlhood
This week at the Divas Media Group Program, the Divas explored gender norms and girlhood. Through forum theatre and spoken word videos, the Divas analyzed media representations of gender and femininity. This activity helped them gain a deeper understanding of the gender binary and learn about a range of gender identities, including gender-fluid and trans-identities. At the end of this session, the Divas composed their first poetry that challenges labels and addresses the themes of girlhood and femininity. It was an exciting session for the Divas.
