We’re Caught in a Gender Trap. Can You Help Get us Out?
Find out from new research in 2021, the gender stereotypes affecting girls and boys, and learn what you can do to set kids free.
According to our research in 2016 and 2021, children continue to feel trapped within the constraints of gender stereotypes, limiting their freedom to respond to their feelings and interests. In this session we will share our findings on;
- How girls and boys view themselves and each other
- What and who influences their views
- How their behaviour and future aspirations are affected by gender stereotypes
And we will invite you to consider the role media organisations can play in helping kids to feel free to be themselves.
