Hi Saoirse,

Thanks for your post. As someone who also works in an all boys’ school, I share many of the experiences you have outlined in this post. Gender equality is something that we must teach – it’s extremely important in single sex schools as there are less ‘lived experiences’ of gender discrimination in the school setting. Emma Watson’s speech (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkjW9PZBRfk) certainly provides powerful talking points and is one that could easily be used to begin a lesson/unit of work in this area.
