Critically acclaimed, Gender Revolution follows Katie Couric as she travels coast to coast to meet with the leading scientists and experts to answer questions about gender identity. She also speaks with ordinary people who find their bodies and lives on the front line of a rapidly changing world. This film examines roles of science, politics, and culture on gender, shedding light on the countless untold stories of struggle, understanding, ignorance, and love.
