- This project aims to perform a thorough multidisciplinary investigation that reveals how individuals of all backgrounds suffer due to the oppressive patriarchal norms that are embedded in their culture by demonstrating how the personal struggles they develop are responses to the perpetuation of these norms within their societys economic social systemswhich harms them on both psychological and economic levelsby responding to the cultural critiques present within the Japanese video game Persona 4: Golden. The traditional patriarchal structuring of modern economic systems pressures workers to conform to the inherently discriminating cultural values of their society through their social positioning in the workforce, which perpetuates the dominant patriarchal hegemony that is enforcing the institutionalized marginalization of non-heteronormative/female populations. This project contends that the lives of people of all gender are limited by the patriarchal context of their labor and economic systems, which robs them of their agency of their own lives as the implicit social pressures within their cultures gender norms pressure them to conform to detrimental traditional values that psychologically traumatize them by denying the legitimacy of their own gender identities and ostracizing them in their communities.
