I introduced my kids to one of my favorite poems ("If" by Rudyard Kipling), which ends with:

"If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!"

Noah loved it.  
Sarah said, "It's good, but it's kinda sexist, don't you think?"
We talked about the fact that some women can be the kind of man described in the poem.
