Episode 75: What Asian TV Taught Us About Gender Expression
Nov 11, 2020
Gender expression is often taught to us through things like TV shows, school uniform rules, or conversation with our parents. But when you grow up in between two different cultures, it can mean you’re exposed to double the stereotypes and expectations!
Today we take a blast to the past to observe the various gender roles we’ve picked up through our favorite Asian dramas and celebrities, and explore how these portrayals translate to female empowerment and LGBTQ acceptance in society and our families.
Our guest, Karen, is a fellow podcast host of her own show Mx. Asian-American, where she explores the Asian-American experience in all aspects of life. Check out the episode that Crystal and I did on Karen's podcast (ep#24 - East vs. West with Crystal and Jeesoo)!
