You are my Everything: Women in Codependent Relationships
Even in an era that some people call "postfeminist," women continue to be socialized to put other's needs before their own, make romance a top priority, and try to please the people in their lives, sometimes to the point of losing sight of pleasing themselves. Female socialization, in other words, sets women up to develop codependent relationships. The Center for Women's and Gender Studies celebrates Valentine's Day by examining destructive patterns in relationships, as well as suggesting more healthy relationship sytles. Mary Underwood, M.S.W., a local counselor who specializes in family counseling, addiction, and romantic relationships will give a talk on this subject and answer questions from the audience.
