#mm: Perceiving gender stereotypes – 4 exercises

The following exercises mainly address the observation and comparison of behaviours attributed to male and female. The focus of the observations should not be so much on one’s own behaviour, but rather on the collective and social aspects of gender. At the same time, however, it should be kept in mind that collective attributions can also quickly affect or hurt our individual self-image. Careful handling is particularly important here: gender stereotypes should be addressed but at the same time they should not be reinforced or codified.

#mm: Food for Thought on the Theme of Gender

Partly provocative anecdotes, statements and theses should stimulate thinking and discussion. In contrast to “Impulses for getting started”, in this exercise, the themes are more complex and leave the development and range of the discussion relatively open.
