Download the discussion guide for National Geographic’s Gender Revolution.

In National Geographic’s Gender Revolution (January 2017), you will find articles about such diverse topics as the science behind gender, the various ways that different cultures mark a boy’s transition to manhood, the risks girls face in many countries, and the status of gender equality internationally.

Gender Revolution: A Journey With Katie Couric builds upon the dialogue of the print issue to deepen the viewer’s understanding of gender. Our companion discussion guide draws upon both these resources to help users clarify their own knowledge and attitudes about gender and to promote discussion of how gender develops, how families can talk with their children about gender, the role of gender in the larger culture, and the next steps we can take to promote inclusion and acceptance in an increasingly diverse world.

Gender Revolution: A Journey With Katie Couric premieres Monday, February 6th at 9 p.m. ET on National Geographic.
