Winter / Spring Series: Men
The next session begins on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. The series will meet every other Tuesday through May 16, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. All meetings will be virtual.
Series: Our discussion starter will be Scene on Radio’s Season 3, Men.
If you have ever wondered how this became a male dominated world or how sexism, patriarchy, and misogyny evolved, then this is a series you will want to attend. These questions and many more will be explored by co-hosts John Biewen and Celeste Headlee in this series. Scene on Radio is a podcast from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, distributed by PRX. (Podcast home page)
Why did we select this series of podcasts?
We moved away from this podcast several years ago because of its sensitive subject matter. However, the recent Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision which overturned Roe v. Wade made us revisit this series of podcasts. It appears that SCOTUS is considering reviewing additional issues that may affect women, the LGBTQ+ community, and other racial and ethnic communities.
As a learning organization, it becomes important that we hold these difficult conversations about sexism, patriarchy, and misogyny to understand the genesis of these beliefs. This series more than any other will cover sensitive topics about how our society views rape and why it is often explained away in favor of the violator and not the violated. We will discuss the LGBTQ community and the Black community, and how these issues impacted the Civil Rights movement. Few stones will be left unturned in the upcoming series.
Time and Commitment
We have allocated additional time for this series to unpack and discuss these issues, which is why the session runs from January 10 – May 16. In addition, we will ask cohort members to attend every meeting as each session will build on previous sessions. To hear more about this series, we invite you to listen to the trailer.
