What IS gender? Is it something other than male and female? If so, how can that be? Are we comfortable with the possibility of that, and if not, why not? What about those people who use “they/them” to describe themselves…what is that about? Where does sexual attraction come into play with gender? All these questions and more will be discussed and explored in Gender 101. Jill Carroll is a scholar as well as a member of the LGBTQ community and parent to a gender-fluid child. She will tell her own story and address the definitions and differences between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual expression.
Dr. Carroll is a recognized expert on issues of religious tolerance, philosophy of religion, American religion, and religion in public life. She worked for many years as a lecturer and adjunct associate professor at Rice University, where she was executive director of the Boniuk Center for Religious Tolerance, and at several campuses of the University of Houston.
