ARTbreak: The Gendering of Color with Megan Maas

Presented by Kalamazoo Institute of Arts at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo MI

Oct 18 2022
ARTbreak: The Gendering of Color with Megan Maas

Author, professor, and activist Dr. Megan K. Maas will guide us through the history of gendered toys and how play with dolls can be connected to some of the relationships and gendered violence that occurs today.

Blue for boys and pink for girls was not always the case. Dr. Maas will take us through the evolution of marketing that co-constructed a rigid and harmful binary perspective on gender. She will also discuss how parenting has shifted in terms of gendered socialization and how parents can take small steps to ensure healthy ideas of masculinity and femininity among children.
