Femininity (?)

The project “Femininity (?)” revolves around the concept of femininity and the ideological conflict built upon it. Gender stereotypes suggests several aspects that confront masculinity with femininity, establishing boundaries that limit the person's development. Within these boundaries, everyone should fit the "norm", otherwise people tend to be socially outcasted. How do we overcome the contradiction between the ideas of “womanhood” and “personhood”? Are gender stereotypes harmless or do they limit our identity development? What does being a woman means? Is there a concrete definition of femininity?
Judith Butler :“Identity categories are never merely descriptive, but always normative, and as such, exclusionary.”
“Feminists should understand ‘woman’ as open-ended and as a term in process, a becoming, a constructing that cannot rightfully be said to originate or end… it is open to intervention and resignification.”
