Re: Ch. 20: Feminism, Postfeminism, and Ideologies of Feminity

  1. How are masculinity and femininity constructed in our society? Think about the pros and cons of the "nature versus nurture" debate, outlined in your textbook, in relation to the construction of femininity and masculinity.

  2. Consider the phrase: "All gender behavior is performance." What are some examples of gender being a performance? In what ways do you perform gender?

  3. What do you think is wrong or right with contemporary representations of women or men (you pick) in advertising? Discuss, with examples.
