Entry Description:

Research has shown that girls & boys from 8 to 12 years old are fairly alike in terms of interest and appearance. Gender and appearance play important roles in society. Boys and girls feel the pressure to emphasize their gender role. Girls make themselves more feminine by their clothing style and makeup. Boys make themselves more masculine in their behavior and style of dress. The children in these pictures are completely themselves. Fully balanced, in line with who they are and essentially pure. Do you know who is a boy or a girl in the series?
