042717couricGender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric, May 2nd

It used to be simple: You were a boy or you were a girl. Girls wore pink, and boys wore blue; girls played with dolls, and boys played with trucks. Yet around the globe, these traditional notions of gender are changing rapidly, and the labels are no longer so clear cut. National Geographic sets out to explore this evolving concept of gender through the lens of science, society and culture in the groundbreaking two-hour film Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric. Cinema Art Theater, Lewes.
