The Mask You Live In: Post-screening Community Discussion @ CCSF
Free Zoom Webinar on May 7, from 6-7pm
Join Dr. Mauro Osborne-Sifuentes, Professor of Women's and Gender Studies at CCSF and instructor of Intro to Masculinity Studies (WGST 35, offered Fall 2020), in a free webinar discussion open to the public on themes presented in the documentary film The Mask You Live In.
- How do gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, sexuality, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men?
- How do we challenge dominant masculinity, build new forms of masculinity, and understand the role of men and masculine people in work for gender justice?
The Mask You Live In, written, directed, and produced by California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, is available streaming online through San Francisco and other Bay Area public libraries. CCSF students, faculty and staff can access the film through the CCSF Library.
