13-year-old Ella Fields wrote, directed and edited this short film that switches gender stereotypes as a means for commenting on their arbitrary assignments.

Talking to HuffPost, the ninth grader, who is also an Outspeak Partner, explained

I mainly just wanted to raise awareness of how stereotypes are meaningless. Girls can do anything boys can do, and boys can do anything we can, too.”

In Fields’ film, boys are the only ones who are supposed to wear dresses and girls are forbidden from participating in musical theatre, both things the female protagonist yearns to do.
