Starting in infanthood, women's voices are constantly critiqued, conditioned, and policed: shrill, harsh, babyish, sexy, sing-songy, girly, loud, quiet, etc. No wonder so many women are silenced, since every time they open their mouths they are subject to scrutiny. And, what does it even mean to sound “like a girl?” You Sound Like a Girl is a performance that seeks to both answer and dismantle this question.
You Sound Like a Girl is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of You Sound Like a Girl must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
CO/LAB exists to offer individuals with developmental disabilities a creative and social outlet through theater arts. Colleen will be a Supporting Artist for CO/LAB's spring semester classes!
