BOSTON (CBS) – Target is making headlines for a recent decision to make the kids sections of their stores more gender-neutral. The chain will be getting rid of gender-specific signage, as well as blue and pink wall colors that are currently used to designate gender-specific aisles. Salem State University Professor Rebecca Hains is author of the book The Princess Problem: Guiding Our Girls Through The Princess-Obsessed Years. She joins NightSide to talk about Target’s decision, and the gender restrictions that we sometimes force onto children. Do you agree with the move to make toys and other products for kids more gender-neutral?
