Ridgefield High student to discuss gender roles at library June 13

Fighting Gender Roles: A Panel Discussion at Ridgefield Library on Tuesday, June 13, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. will be hosted by Ridgefield High School senior Cara MacKenzie.

MacKenzie is currently interning at The Women's Center in Danbury.

The panel, which will include fellow RHS senior Helen Redmond, West Conn professor Darla Shaw and Johanna DeBari of the Women's Center, intends to focus on the harmful and lasting consequences of enforcing traditional gender roles on both males and females and how they perpetuate a cycle of domestic violence.
