On Thursday, the 20th of January there was another Deep Talk that took place in УЛАФ СТЕ cafe. This biweekly event is hosted by two 19-year-old Dutch volunteers and it provides participants with an opportunity to open-endedly join in on a conversation about a deeper topic, to gain insights, and to practice speaking English. This Deep Talk was attended by three new people. The topic of the Deep Talk was Gender Roles.
The way we organize the Deep talks is that before the event we fill a jar with questions, written on small pieces of paper. Then we can pass the jar around so everyone takes out a question, reads it out loud, and then tries to answer. Anyone who has something to add or ask may always jump in. This way we shape the talk and allow everyone to have input in the discussion. For the topic: Gender Roles we had questions such as: “What is the most toxic thing to say to a man?”, “Which gender gets more comments about their clothes?” and “Are there different expectations for sons and daughters?”. After an hour of talking, we were not finished with the discussion so we stayed for an hour more. Having gained some new ideas and views we look back on a great event, thanks to all the participants!
