July 29th Service: Free to be…me and You

This Sunday Mary McGinnis will lead a discussion about the role “gender” plays in our society and an exploration of our own views with an emphasis and closer look at our everyday language.  The title comes from a project of the Ms. Foundation for Women in the early seventies, resulting in a record album and a book of the same name.

It has been over forty years ago since the “Free to be me and you” project. What progress have we made towards the project’s goal, and where does gender bias live in our society today? There will be an opportunity to list gender-identified words, phrases, sayings, stereotypes, descriptions, etc.  Those who wish can share what you think about men and women; what you say about men/women; and how you behave.  Can we really affirm “the inherent worth and dignity of every person” if we confine their individuality within pre-set and pre-judged parameters of gender?
