Youth In Focus Jasmine
Gender roles are the stereotypes you first think of when you think of a man or a woman. It goes unnoticed in everyday life because it has become the “norm.” Everywhere we go, we see pink balloons for girls, blue balloons for boys. It’s weird for us to see a young man planting flowers while his wife mows the lawn. It’s not going to happen tomorrow, but we all need to work on accepting people are going to do what they want, no matter what gender they identify as. We are known as the generation of change, so I hope we can all work together to create the world where anyone can be, feel, and do anything they want.
