Individual in Society – Discussion #4

Butler writes, “To be female is […} a facticity which has no meaning, but to be a woman is to have become a woman, to compel the body to conform to an historical idea of ‘woman,’ to induce the body to become a cultural sign, to materialize oneself in obedience to an historically delimited possibility, and to do this as a sustained and repeated corporeal project.”Using Butler’s article and the two films, explain what this means.  What does this mean to you and what personal experiences can you draw from to further illustrate your answers.  Engage with group members to tease out your responses. 300+ words.Video link:* MUST use the PDF and the video to answer questions.
