Hi Naomi,

It’s refreshing to hear the practical steps you’ve taken in your senior classes to combat engrained societal stereotypes. Flipping the roles/jobs is a simple but really effective way to get student’s to think differently about gender roles. I particularly like the idea of getting all students knitting, an activity strongly perceived as a female one and that despite initial reluctance from the boys. everyone engaged and produced an end product. More of the same I think is the way to go if we are to try and challenge preconceived ideas around gender and earlier we can start this the better.
