National Geographic January 2017 Highlights:

Rethinking Gender

Can science help us navigate the shifting landscape of gender identity? Mandy (below) identifies as fa’afafine, a third gender in Samoa.

I Am Nine Years Old

National Geographic traveled to 80 homes on four continents to ask kids how gender affects their lives. The answers from this diverse group of children were astute and revealing.

Making A Man

In traditional cultures the path to manhood is marked with ceremonial rites of passage. But in societies moving away from strict gender roles, boys have to find their own ways to become men.

American Girl

In some ways it’s easier to be an American girl these days: Although beauty still rules, people are more accepting of differences. In another way it’s worse: Everything plays out on social media.

Dangerous Lives of Girls

In Sierra Leone, wracked by civil war and Ebola, nearly half of girls marry before 18, and many become mothers by 19. Yet even in this troubled land, some girls find a way to rise.

Dads At Home

More than in most nations, Sweden’s parental leave involves fathers.

Girls At Risk

A by-the-numbers look at how girls and women around the world are faring, from education to equal opportunity.
