Part 4 of Applied Final Project: Understanding Role Reversal

Discussion 1. Gendered violence is a persistent problem all over the world.

You can see statistics concerning violence against women around the world here: UN Women: Facts and Figures: Ending Violence Against Women. Statistics concerning domestic violence in the United States can be found here (scroll down for information on men as victims of domestic violence as well): National Coalition Against Domestic Violence: Statistics.

The readings this week outline the wide variety of presentations of gendered violence. We frequently focus on one type of violence at a time: domestic or intimate partner violence, sexual assault at colleges or in the military, honor killings, or rape as an instrument of war, for example. It is more instructive, however, to think of all of these types of violence as connected.

Recently, there has also been a greater focus on the rate of violence (and self-harm) among transgender people, particularly young people, and also on the extent of under-reported gendered violence against men, much of it also perpetrated by men.

Based on your reading for this week, respond to the following:

  • First, define what we mean by “gendered violence.” Why not just “violence?”
  • Why have we focused primarily on violence against women? Do you agree with adding violence against men and transgender people, or do you see these as separate phenomena? What (if anything) connects all of these types of violence?
  • What purposes does gendered violence serve in a society? Give at least two specific examples.
  • After everything you read for this week, define the one or two most important societal factors that you believe lead to gendered violence. How can we address these factors? Are boys and men predisposed to commit gendered violence? What needs to happen to make a significant dent in the rates of gendered violence?
Question 2.

Part Four of Applied Final Project, Role Reversals: Understanding Our Gendered Selves:

“Understanding My Role-Reversal Act” (20% of course grade; due end of Week 7)

Five (5) pages (1200-1500 words)

All parts of this project should be formatted in APA style (follow for both essay and citation styles): APA Style Guide: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/

Purpose: Act Performance and Analysis

At this point, you will have completed your act. In this final part of the assignment, you will describe and analyze it. Write a five page (1200-1500 words) paper detailing your experiences. The first section one-third to one half of your paper should describe your act and your responses to it, and the second one-half to two-thirds of your paper should analyze your act in terms of the scholarship on gender:

Section One (minimum 500 words):

    1. Describe your act:
      1. What did you do?
      2. Where did you do it?
      3. How did you prepare for it?
    2. What responses did you get while performing your act?
    3. How did you feel while performing your act?
    4. What would you do differently if you had to perform this same act again? Would you perform the act in the same location and at same time? Would you change your appearance during the act? Would you do anything else differently? Please refer to the required reading on Participant Observation for this assignment (Mack et al., 2005) [link provided in general description of assignment above].

Section Two: (minimum 700 words):

Using at least three of the sources you identified and discussed in your Annotated Bibliography for Part 3, and/or the readings for this class for support (provide direct quotes for full credit), consider the potential impact of your act. Here are some questions to consider (you do not have to answer all of these questions; they are provided to help you to think about ways your act may have impact on society):

    • Can you explain the range of reactions to your act? Did those reactions reflect any of the sociological scholarship found in the course readings or in your research? Did any of the reactions challenge that research?
    • How do you think class, race, age, and sexuality came into play during the conception and performance of the act?
    • Was performing this act an act of feminism? Why? and, if so, what type(s) of feminism?
    • Was your act an act of activism? That is, could it help to create social change? If so, how?
