Gender stories: negotiating identity in a binary world - TG Storytime


Together we are weaving the tale of gender data. Like all good stories, this tale features wise characters — pioneers in the field who began the conversation about the importance of collecting and using unbiased data about the lives of girls and women at the   Beijing Conference  over two decades ago — and brave champions who have continued the work today.

Like all good stories, however, there are challenges to overcome — to close gender data gaps we need greater political will, technical capacity, and resources. To help address these challenges, we also need concrete examples from around the world that show how collecting and using gender data can lead to positive outcomes.

Although a dearth of gender data means that these stories can be hard to find and compile, we are certain they exist, and so Data2X , in partnership with   Open Data Watch  and Devex, has opened a call for   Gender Data Impact Stories .

The "Modified Image Fiction" section contains stories that were inspired by some of the graphics in the Modified Images section. Similarly, the "Earth-349 Stories" are fan stories of a world where many familiar heroes are of the opposite sex.

The other items below are TG stories which I've culled from old books and magazines. They're not new, but hey, they may be new to you ...

Ok, so there's technically no transformation in this one, and the graphic on the left isn't even taken from the story. Still, this is a sweet tale of teenage crossdressing as a boy is drafted into dressing up as a cheerleader when the roles are reversed for a day.

The damage done by the thousands of dollars I lost to the gender pay gap sticks with me today, despite leaving that employer long ago. My retirement fund isn’t as robust, and I took out more in graduate student loans than I would have if I’d been paid fairly. I’ve been shortchanged by the gender pay gap — and I’m far from alone.

I know this from statistics — the pay gap costs a typical woman at least $400,000 over the course of her career — and because of women who bravely share their stories of unfair pay in hopes of creating change ahead. Here are seven of these women’s stories.


Kerri Sleeman worked for five years at a company that designed, built, and installed laser welding assembly systems. When she was hired, Sleeman said company officials told her they didn’t negotiate pay. In 2003, the company was forced into bankruptcy and employees had to go through bankruptcy court for their final paychecks. When Sleeman looked at the court’s list of claims, she was heartbroken. People she had supervised had larger claims for two weeks of pay than she did.
