Video: Challenging Stereotypes
In a society where by age seven most children’s idea of what they’ll do is already influenced by their social background, ethnicity, and gender, where only about 22% of boys study literature and 23% of girls study physics, aren’t we all being nudged in certain directions according to our backgrounds?
The lessons and activities on IOP Spark are intended for use alongside the Challenging Stereotypes animation, aiming to explore unconscious bias, the difference between sex and gender, gender misconceptions, gender conformity and gender roles.
