On today’s episode, we’re checking in on America and how she’s coping with the increasingly changing gender roles and gender equity. Sometimes, we suffer growing pains as we transition from one set of norms into a new one.
And, to some, these pains are not easy to grin and bear. Traditional values sometimes become a lifeline for people in a disconnected, busy society; the defending of these traditional ideologies becomes even more important to some when a lot of things are making big strides at the same time, such as marriage equality, gender equality, and anti-racism.
It’s important to have patience and tolerance on both sides of change. We can’t shuffle everyone into either friend or foe… sometimes people need a moment. Sometimes people need to be part of the dialogue. And sometimes people need to watch silently from the sidelines until they know where they fit.
Please join us in discussing how humankind is handling this momentous time.
