Jobs and professions
Area/s of intervention
|To show that jobs and roles are not pertinent to only one gender|
Short description of the activities
|Select and show pictures that go against stereotypes, such as a man doing housekeeping work, or a woman driving a lorry.|
Alternatively, look for the first person/ pioneer of the past, who underwent a profession that was considered unsuited to their native gender at the time (for example the first pilot woman, the first man aesthetician, etc.).
In both cases, a group reflection is guided carefully, so as to not reinforce stereotypes themselves.
The Practice has contributed to
- Debunking stereotypes associated to social roles of men and women
- Show children that they can choose freely their look and their career/ growth path
