Dismantling the patriarchy
Please tell us about your submission (maximum 600 words)
My submission is based around the internal and external factors adding to interpersonal violence, perpetuating the patriarchy we live in today. How the negative ways to deal with the stress of society have been passed down for generations from what we see to who we are surrounded by. That all different factors all build up into what we see in society nowadays. The cycle is clearly shown as the main piece to bring to light on how we live in a never ending cycle of this horrible patriarchy. The three points, political, social and psychological, all have examples on how women have been affected by this, specifically in equal rights. The poster also explains what it prevents us from doing but also what diciates us on doing based on our gender expression and everyday social norms. At the bottom, I added in why we should dismantle the patriarchy because it will encourage healthy expressions between one another while educating younger generations on how to live a healthier life.
What is something you learned about patriarchy and what is something you would like to change about what you learned?
Something I learned about patriarchy while doing this project is how it can dictate all different things in our day to day life. We also learned this in class with it connecting to what it prevents us doing based on our gender expression and social norms. I would like to change what I learned because it has prevented millions throughout years on not being able to fully express who they are what what they want.
