This series is intended to challenge the viewer with social constructs,centred around masculinity and femininity.Genderbias, gender roles and stereotypes can affect everyone negatively.In our society the normative narrative of “male” is tough and assertive and “female” equals tender and weak.Manhood needs to be proven continuously and can be lost.Research demonstrates that men too face backlash if they don’t adhere to masculine gender stereotypes.Showing vulnerability, displaying empathy, expressing sadness and acting nicer can lead to lower status,less income and potential career derailment
