>How do gender rules or categories affect your life at school?
>Not only is Transgender Day of Remembrance a way to honor and celebrate
the lives of transgender and gender-nonconforming people, it’s also a
great moment to look at how gender affects our lives and our schools.
Gender categorization is everywhere, including the books we’re supposed
to like, the school subjects we’re supposed to be good in, even the
jobs we’re expected to have! These gender rules can be tough to follow
for all students, not just for transgender and gender-nonconforming
So think, where do you see gender at your school? How does
gender affect you?
