#WomanTalk, features self-identified women who can help to explore the meaning and importance of the varying aspects of gender fluidity and show that there are many ways to interpret one’s identity using gender (and these terms) that expand beyond just “man” and “woman”.
Many of the associated cultural gender stereotypes begin from the understandings of the terms “man” and “woman”, “masculine” and “feminine”, and derive from heterosexual understandings of what gender should be defined as. However, these social constructs do not necessarily describe all individuals who identify with the associated genders and sexualities. Gender is not “black” and “white”, and it is now being recognized that there are varying aspects of gender in relation to identity that go beyond just “man” and “woman” and “masculine” and “feminine”.

What does it mean to self-identified women to choose to embody and embrace this gender identity today?
