The Center is proud to present author Lisa Selin Davis in conversation with interviewees from her recent publication, “Tomboy.” In “Tomboy,” Davis explores the evolution of tomboyism from a Victorian ideal to a twenty-first century fashion statement, honoring the girls and women–and those who identify otherwise–who stomp all over archaic gender norms. She highlights the forces that have shifted what we think of as masculine and feminine, delving into everything from clothing to psychology, history to neuroscience, and the connection between tomboyism, gender identity and sexuality. In this panel discussion, interviewees discuss their childhood tomboyism and its relationship to their sexuality and/or gender identity; their feelings about the word tomboy (and if it should be replaced, then with what); and how parents of gender-diverse kids can be supportive.Buy tickets/get more info now
