editor's note

“It’s a girl.”

We knew it would be. Of course, we didn’t really, but somehow, we knew. And while we both breathed a sigh of relief when the ultrasound technician told us the news (my husband because he was hoping for a daughter, me because I only had good name ideas for girls), all of a sudden, something in me shifted, and a small knot formed in my stomach.

It’s a girl. I’m a girl. I grew up in a family of girls. Girls are all I really know, and that means I know both the joy of being a girl and the unique challenges it brings. What does it even mean to be a girl?
