Abstract:

Focusing on sex roles and stereotypes, this video includes comments from author Tomie dePaolo, Arctic explorer Ann Bancroft, dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones, and makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin about what set them apart from "normal" children as they were growing up, and interviews with first graders about how they view boys' and girls' roles. Interspersed between the commentary are readings and vocal renditions of Tomie dePaolo's semi-autobiographical story "Oliver Button is a sissy," a story about a boy who is ridiculed by his parents and peers simply because he'd rather sing and dance than play sports or engage in activities "normal" boys enjoy.
