Thinking about gender stereotypes through P4C

posted 20 Jan 2020, 01:13 by Kathryn Davis   [ updated 20 Jan 2020, 01:14 ]

We have been learning about percentages of men and women in different jobs. We thought about how the role of women has changed over time. After looking at various graphs and images, the children choose the following P4C questions to discuss:

Why are girls known to be all pink and girly and boys to be all rough and like football?

Some of their comments:

  •   Origins come from the past when boys were out hunting and girls were inside learning to cook and knit. As things became more modern, pink was thought of as a homely colour. 
  • (G) I don’t think it’s a true stereotype. I don’t like pink. Blue is one of my favourite colours. Now things are changing, everyone can be who they want to be.
  • (B) I agree with everyone and I disagree with the question. I like pink. I don’t like football that much. I’m not rough. I’m kind.
  • (B) I detest football. My favourite colour is purple.
  • Boys and girls should be treated equally.
  • All boys and girls should be able to do what they want.
