When the concept of patriarchy is brought up, many people tend to think that it’s an issue of the past. However, we know that this definitely is not the case. Patriarchy is, in fact, a major issue that still affects the livelihood of everyone — men included! Living in a patriarchal society places immense pressure on people of all genders to fit into preprescribed roles and meet social expectations — particularly in the workplace, female and queer relationships, and parenting.

Based on her article Patriarchy and How It Shows Up For Everyone, Shannon Ridgway will discuss how to eradicate gender stereotypes, break free of these assigned roles, and free ourselves — as well as others.
