Cultural Expectations of Gender: Melding the Chalice and the Blade to Foster Peace
Audio
Delivered By
Dr. Kim Crowley
Delivered On
January 15, 2012
Description

Dr. Crowley discusses concepts posited in Riane Eisler's "The Chalice and the Blade:  Our History, Our Future," which outlines the historical and cultural underpinnings of some of the most widely held beliefs about the sexes.  Eisler argues against the idea that a society must be either patriarchal or matriarchal.  Her argument that this sort of "battle of the sexes" is "neither divinely nor biologically ordained" will be the main topic of conversation.
