We’re watching Paula Stone Williams’s TEDTalk, “What My Gender Transition Taught Me about Womanhood” As we watch her talk, please take notes and consider the following questions:
- Williams argues, “There’s no way he can understand it because it’s all he’s ever known. And all he ever will know.” What do you think of her claim?
- Why are Williams’s examples/perspective helpful in understanding gender differences/relations?
- How could William’s talk be incorporated into an autoethnography?
- How has your perspectives on gender changed this semester? What would you have thought of Williams’s talk 15 weeks ago?
