For this topic, I’m going to be very “structured”
STEP 2: Review these slides (props to Catelynn)
STEP 3: Respond to these:
1. What is binary opposition? Why do humans create these categories? How does this apply to Sherry Ortner’s Is Female to Male as Nature is to Culture?
2. What gender do you feel is closer to nature and which is closer to culture? Why do you think this? How do you think this applies to the inferior status of women pan-culturally? How does structuralism fit into this cultural devaluation of women?
