Movie: The Mask You Live In
The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company hosts a special movie screening of “The Mask You Live In,” an exploration of gender stereotypes in children. After starting the influential #AskHerMore campaign in which reporters were encouraged to ask female celebrities more questions about their craft than their style, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom decided to shed some light on the gender stereotypes that are harmful to young men. "The research is out there that suggests that gender stereotypes are harmful to both our boys and our girls," Newsom said. "Compared to girls, boys are more likely to be prescribed meds, be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, expelled from school, fail out of school, and binge drink.” Following this thought-provoking film, a discussion and Q&A will be moderated by Lenny Mendonca.
