Gender is an essential part of all our lives, whether we recognize it as such or not and regardless of how we identify and express that identity. Gender informs how we feel about ourselves, the clothes we wear, how we engage with others, and much more. Not only is gender inextricable from our lived experiences, but it is also a part of our lives about which others often make assumptions regarding how someone should dress and act.
