You Sound Like a Girl is a performance and voice workshop that investigates the social norms surrounding cis women’s and trans women’s voices in order to empower every girl and woman to embrace their voice.
Starting in infanthood, cis women’s and trans women’s voices are constantly criticized, conditioned, and policed: Shrill, harsh, too low, too high, boyish, girly, too loud, too quiet, etc. No wonder so many of us are silenced, since every time we open our mouths we are subject to scrutiny.
And what does it even mean to “sound like a girl”?
The You Sound Like a Girl performance and educational program empowers audience members to interrogate this question and reclaim the answer.
