Women & Gender-based Trauma – Global
Facilitators: Hilorie Baer, Kosha Joubert, Bee James; trainees: Jo Hardy, Neema Namadamu, Krijnie Beyen
Only for Women
In this Lab we will be researching the collective trauma that emerges from gender identity, gender injustice and sexual & domestic abuse. In this phase, the Lab will be for women from all continents and all cultural backgrounds (in the future, a mixed Lab on the same topics might be initiated). We will be seeking to feel and ‘presence’ how gender-based trauma shapes our worldviews and institutions, our ways of being and ‘othering’. How do we participate either in the integration or in the perpetuation of this trauma? And what are the ingredients that might make it possible for us to heal together? We will explore these questions through the specific perspectives and experiences that participants bring.
We will be exploring:
- What constitutes the historical background of gender identity?
- What constitutes the historical background to relationships between women and men?
- What constitutes the historical background to gender-based injustice, sexual abuse and domestic abuse?
- How does gender-based trauma influence the construction of identity and the process of ‘othering’ between men & women, women & women, victim & perpetrator?
- How does gender-based trauma influence the development of worldviews and cultural architecture governing the role of women in societies and the current relationships between genders?
- How does our use of language reflect and reinforce the consequences of this trauma?
- How does gender-based trauma show itself in times of crisis (e.g. Covid-19, climate emergencies)?
- Can we collectively create a coherent we-space and a process of witnessing that leads to an integration and eventual healing of this trauma?
- What are the ingredients that help to make this possible?
