The Mask You Live In: New Video on Boys Opposes Genders Rather than Bringing Girls & Boys Together #girlsboysspeakout #missrepresentation #maskyoulivein

Isn’t it time we bring girls and boys together to explore the similarities in their lives and have them bridge the gaps? Following Miss Representation, a video about the pressures on women, comes a Kickstarter financed video about the real pressures boys face in being a man. Taken together, it’s a 101 on gender roles missing what I hope is the next step: a cross-gender video with solutions from the kids themselves. In my work in co-ed workshops, I’ve learned how to improve lives by listening and defining forces too subtle to define such as media stereotypes and traditional, sexist customs.
