How does femininity manifest in her life? Answers below • •
- Is the theme of femininity essential in your life?
My grandmothers described femininity in one way, the public was offering other interpretations of this concept. Therefore all my life I was forming my own perception of myself as a woman, maybe somewhat intuitively, without relying on one of the “imposing” stereotypes by the environment. I am pleased that a lot is being said about this, but I think that we should always try to keep critical thinking - after listening to different opinions, think about your authentic relationship with femininity. • •
- What characteristics of a woman do you most associate with the concept of femininity?
I know gentle, strong, resolute, sensual, laconic, empathic, diplomatic women - they are all completely different but at the same time feminine and special. Therefore, I think it would be wrong to say that one or another attribute can be associated with femininity and not another. • •
- The concept of femininity covers not only biological but also social and cultural aspects. What is the meaning of that?
Gender is a social construct. A great, simple book - “Building Social Reality” (P. Berger, T. Luckmann) explains the process by which different concepts are formed in one way or another by people who are important to us - parents, friends, teachers, society in which we grow and develop. •
