Contemporary Gender Roles SIG
This OLLI Contemporary Gender Roles Shared Interest Group was started by Deborah Caine to study and explore cultural changes in the roles of men and women in the family and in the workplace and the multiple changes in gender presentation and identity exemplified in the growth of the LGBTQ+ communities; changes not always easily understood by many.
The group has grown over the last several years from three members to two dozen women and is actively seeking more male members who would enjoy the lively monthly discussions on topics of urgent and current interest.
Members volunteer to lead a discussion on a topic of their choice and/or invite an outside speaker and circulate articles from major newspapers, magazines and journals that are relevant to group interests.
The Contemporary Gender Roles group sponsored an OLLI course on the Equal Rights Amendment in 2018 which was well attended.
We meet on Zoom at 2 pm on the third Wednesday of the month.
