How Did Pink Become a Girly Color?

1. Reflection Questions

How does learning about the cultural history of the color pink impact your thinking? 

Who benefitted from associated pink with women-identified folks?

Who, if anyone, was harmed? 

2. Take Action

Dig Deeper. Cultural norms are created and challenged by what people in a community and culture are willing to challenge and accept. You can make a difference in how you and the community around you accept harmful gender norms by learning more about your own gender. To learn more about gender diversity, check out resources from Trans Student Educational Resources, a youth-led organization dedicated to transforming schools and educational communities for trans and gender non-conforming students.
