In this 90 minute documentary with National Geographic, Katie Couric sets out to explore the rapidly evolving complexities of gender identity. The story of gender plays out all around us. More and more, celebrities are shining a spotlight on the subject. But more quietly, our children, parents, teachers, medical professionals, and officials every day confront an array of issues with gender at the center.
Everywhere we looked, in the U.S. and around the globe, individuals and organizations are fighting to redefine traditional gender roles, whether it is girls in war-torn Sierra Leone rejecting the cultural norm of female genital mutilation and child marriage, men in Sweden making use of extended paternal leave after having a child, or people who reject binary, boy–girl labels and find their true identity elsewhere on a gender spectrum.
Join us in partnership with Intersections International; I’m From Driftwood; and Believe Out Loud for a special screening and panel discussion in New York city, as we explore the the need for discourse and dialogue to examine gender around the world.
