GENDER: What can I do to challenge gender stereotypes?

In Episode 11 of PRTV, we take a look at gender and related stereotypes. For some of us gender roles are really comfortable, but for others they can really hold us back from being ourselves. Either way, it’s a great idea to talk about gender stereotypes – this episode and discussion questions should get you started.

  1.  What do you think the world would look like if there were no norms or expectations around gender? How would it be different?
  2. When do you think the pressure to ‘act’ like a particular gender norm begins in life? How does it come about?
  3. What are some specific ways that we can create more inclusive and support environments for people whose feelings, interests and expression of gender don’t fit with the conventional ‘norms.’
