For every girl who is tired of acting weak when she is strong,

there is a boy tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.

For every boy who is burdened with the constant expectation of knowing everything,

there is a girl tired of people not trusting her intelligence.

For every girl who is tired of being called over-sensitive,

there is a boy who fears to be gentle, to weep.

For every boy for whom competition is the only way to prove his masculinity,

there is a girl who is called unfeminine when she competes.

For every girl who throws out her E-Z-Bake Oven,

there is a boy who wishes to find one.

For every boy struggling not to let advertising dictate his desires,

there is a girl facing the ad industry's attacks on her self esteem.

For every girl who takes a step toward her liberation,

there is a boy who finds the way to freedom a little easier.
