Gender Studies Institute Annual Lecture, Dr. Allyson Jule, “I’m Not Your Princess: How the Hyper-Feminine Hinders Wholeness”

Tired of that “ring by spring” mantra?

Then you may want to attend this free public lecture that explores the power behind the princess motif and the role of entitlement. “Disney Princess culture” has impacted today’s young women in such a way that has raised expectations and demands on both young women and men. The implicit yet powerful messages that result are often demanding yet demeaning to the roles for girls and women.

Dr. Allyson Jule, Professor & Dean, TWU School of Education, is co-founder of the TWU GSI & the author of eight books, including Gender, Participation & Silence in the Classroom: Sh-shushing the Girls & A Beginner’s Guide to Language and Gender. She is currently the President of Canada’s Women & Gender Studies et Recherches Féministe Association.
