Birds, Bees, and #MeToo—Helping Our Kids Build Gender Equality

As new movements throw fresh awareness on the ills of gender inequality in American life, how can we ensure we raise children with healthy, positive, shame-free, and egalitarian attitudes about bodies, gender, sex, and love? To shed some light on this discussion, author Bonnie J. Rough takes Town Hall’s stage in conversation with sexuality and parenting expert Amy Lang and columnist Nicole Brodeur. With wisdom from her book Beyond Birds & Bees: Bringing Home a New Message About Sex, Love, and Equality, Rough shares the story of her journey to the Netherlands as a new mother and the experiences she encountered that transformed her approach to educating her children about our human bodies. Rough brings the conversation of the birds and the bees into the 21st century. Join Rough, Lang, and Brodeur for a discussion on the ways we can support children’s sex-ed, development, and overall well-being across an evolving culture of gender and sexuality.
