A. I did know about gender bias. It was a subject gone over in school, and I was aware of it going on in our world. I knew that it was a problem that girls were not treated the same as boys and that it was unfair.
A. Before this, I was also aware of gender discrimination in my daily life. There were always comments about how girls aren't as good as boys and stuff like, "You throw like a girl." Sometimes boys would think that they were automatically better than girls at something, just because they were a boy.
A. My reaction was just confused. I was confused about why someone would care so much about me being a girl. I was sort of surprised too. I thought, "So what if I'm a girl?"
