Write a paper that explains how you see yourself, another person, or members of an organization/institution with respect to gender.
The paper should focus on gender as expressed and experienced through a person’s life events. You may discuss any or all of the following: family dynamics (i.e., birth order, family expectations, religious values, other influential institutions, etc.), and culture (how a person learns to act as a gendered person), have formed a worldview (“…the way in which we perceive the world –and our behavior” Gamble & Gamble, 2003, p. 59) and ultimately influenced communication. You are not required to write about your personal gender; you may choose to write about a family member, friend, religious figure, secular public figure, or member of a specific institution, industry, or organization. If you are unsure of your approach, feel free to e-mail your instructor for guidance. While there is no expectation that you reveal your own personal information, the intent of the paper is for you to write from a personal perspective, not solely from online references. If a person described is not a publicly known figure, be sure to refer to them by a pseudonym.
