Our Correspondents write about Gender because it is a global phenomenon that everybody navigates. It is also a global challenge. Gender is the assumption of what is "supposed to be" and its correlating performances. It is the creation of identities and unmet expectations of what is "normal" that causes violence world-wide in the micro- and macro-perspective. And just as knowledge is never static and ever-growing, it is the perspectives of our Correspondents that help us understand the link between the individual experience and global developments, as well as to disentangle the concepts that have been created and reinforced for centuries.
The Gender section will give insight into the interrelations between culture, identity, violence, and other structural factors in the labor market (read Hal Fulcher’s story), in art (read Milton Camilo’s story) and elsewhere. We hope the personal stories of our Correspondents will help You better understand the complexities of gender.
