The topic of gender is greatly misunderstood. The Gender Revolution is a 1.5 hour video produced by National Geographic and hosted by Katie Couric that explores the complex issues of sex at birth, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation what is means to be male, female, transgender, gender non-conforming/non-binary and intersexed in today’s society. The video follows Katie Couric as she travels across the U.S. talking with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors and families about the complex issue of gender.

There will be a question and discussion period following the video.
