What does it mean to be a boy? What does it mean to be a girl?

National Geographic traveled around the world to talk with 9-year-olds and ask what it's like to be growing up in 2016, and how gender affects their lives. What makes them happy and sad? Is there anything you can't do because of your gender? Their answers inspire, can make you laugh or cry, and show how the next generation is considering gender identities in a new way.
