For our forth installment of Blurred Misogyny, we are joined again by local Austin artist, Adrienne Parker.
In this episode we turn our attention away from how the media specifically portrays the female form and rather to how education and upbringing are applied differently to females than males. We consider how women fare in the academic world as well as how they have been historically treated in this world. We discuss maths and science programs and question whether or not women getting involved in these kinds of fields will have an impact on how men see them in the future.
And like so many of our previous episodes have tended towards, we consider the idea of inculcation. If women are treated a certain, perhaps negative way their entire lives, then scientifically speaking how would we ever expect that them to rise above antiquated stereotypes moving forward?
