For the grown ups...
'Gender stereotypes are limiting children's potential and causing lifelong harm.'
The Commission, established by The Fawcett Society, has released the report, Unlimited Potential, which shows just how much gender stereotypes in early childhood are limiting our children. Focused on children from 0-7 years of age this report reinforces just how important it is to engage and inspire girls of Primary school age.
Find further information and the full report here.
Lifting Limits is an incredible charity who are delivering gender equality through education. They provide educators with the skills and resources to recognise and correct gender bias that can go unnoticed in primary schools and to support pupils in challenging gender inequalities in the wider world.
Our Streets Now had two of the most popular videos watched at our 2020 festival, Dare to Dream and feminist consent dance video and tutorial. They are now doing even more by sharing their resource pack to help you learn about public sexual harassment and how to tackle it, as part of their Our Schools Now Project.
We were very grateful to author and mental health campaigner, Hope Virgo, for speaking at our 2020 festival. She is now sharing further information on her Lets Talk Eating Disorders campaign.
