NAME: Cassie Morgan WGST 150.001 WOMEN’S VOICES THROUGH TIME Spring 2008 2008 Worksheet Set #4: due Friday 2/15 #20 Judith Lorber, “The Social Construction of Gender” Lorber argues that the “constructed-ness” of gender is hard for us to believe. Why does she say this? Gendering is done constantly from birth, says Lorber. What are some of the ways that your own up- bringing reflects the gender roles that your family and friends, teachers and work supervisors exposed you to? - How I dressed o Hand made dresses - Girl Scouts - How I did my hair o Long hair - Piercings o Ears pierced since birth Why does Lorber say that your gender is better seen as a “process” than as a “status”? She says that gender is better seen as a process rather than as a status because a the “process” starts at birth when our gender is determined based on our genitalia, and the continues as we grow older. Some people, as they mature, feel as if they are not the gender they were assigned at birth, thus making sense to label gender as a “process” rather than a “status”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
