Articles tagged with "Stereotyping"
Power of Leather blog post by Deni (@d.e.n.i_c), takes us on a brief history of the high heel, how they are loved by men and women alike.
Deni highlights a great point from The Age of Enlightenment that "Males were stereotyped as practical and rational, whereas women were seen as sentimental, making them better suited for heels than men", and adds a great quote about stereotypes...
"The problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story." - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
It's certainly great to see a growing number of people blogging about men wearing heels and boots.

Mahamuda Rahman, Communications Officer at Cordaid gives us this perspective on Patriarchy in this interesting blog post.
Why a post about patriarchy? you might ask... because it's all part of a system of oppression that is bad for all of us and helps to maintain the status quo, including the gender stereotypes and social norms that we want to deconstruct.
"The truth behind this propaganda is that some people just love to keep their power and they invent these convenient dichotomies. There is nothing natural about it."
"In patriarchal societies and systems, men have been claiming for centuries that women are inferior to them. By nature."
