Future of Gender

As our definitions of masculinity and femininity shift, gender is no longer as strong a factor in pre-determining the structures of our lives, families, communities and identities today. How will these changes play out over the next few decades? What will gender mean in 2050?

Join New America NYC and the Global Gender Parity Initiative for a conversation on the future of gender and its impact on our lives.
