Breaking Boxes

Our Goal

Gender identity is the first set of boxes children create for their world. They place other boys and girls into these boxes based on what they look like, sound like, and act like. Today’s society is filled with structured roles and expectations for males and females, and children are targeted with these stereotypes from the moment they have their first ultrasound. But the world isn’t black and white, and gender identity isn’t a binary concept; rather, it is a spectrum that allows for diversity in all areas of life at all ages. Our goal is to help children understand that everyone has aspects of themselves that defies “gender boxes”, and to suggest to them that that is okay.
