Young challenges the traditional, hierarchical structure of a learning environment, and challenges conventional notions of gender, drawing attention to the oppressive structures in place.

Feminist Acting Class is a series of experiments to determine if the form and content of an acting class can both be made feminist. Created by Gina Young in 2016, FAC shakes the foundations on which actor training is built. With an approach incorporating scene study, theory, consciousness raising and community-building, FAC can be presented in formats ranging from weekend workshop to 90 minute lecture to long-form summer course. Feminist Acting Class aims to expand the possibilities for women, trans and nonbinary people in theatre, and beyond.
