This Wednesday: Ehrensaft on gender nonconformity
UCSF Associate Professor Diane Ehrensaft visits UCOP this week with a talk entitled “Who are the Genders in Your Neighborhood? Raising a Gender Creative Generation,” on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 12 to 1 p.m. in 9204 Franklin.
Ehrensaft is also a developmental and clinical psychologist and author of several books, including Gender Born, Gender Made: Raising Healthy Gender-Nonconforming Children. Her talk will explore the following questions:
- What are the challenges of gender nonconformity?
- How should parents respond to children who are exploring their gender, curious about gender nonconformity or encounter gender nonconformity in their community?
- How do we balance our fears and desire to protect our children with our desire to create a loving and accepting environment?
