Both boys and girls receive coded and direct messages on gender on a daily basis, be it from their favourite heros, superheros, cartoons, advertising, movies or TV shows. The greatest danger of this gender programming is the perpetuation of bias from generation to generation.
Our GenderSafe™ program helps children make sense of these messages, be better able to decode biased gender messaging in media and clarify their own stands.
Some of the concepts this program addresses, in various age-appropriate levels, include:
# Gender differences, similarities
# Gender roles - self and society
# Gender in heroism
# Gender in humour
# Gender in success
# Alternative genders
# Gender equality
