A performance and voice workshop.

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 and companion voice workshop that seeks to both answer and dismantle this question.
