I can recently think of a scenario in my school of gender stereotyping took place. We recently had a female guest speaker in who plays football for Ireland. Some of the boys were in shock and could not really understand the importance of this person in comparison to one of her male counterparts. I thought it was really effective when the speaker was asked her three favourite players that she gave three female players, and told the class to look them up if they were not aware of who they were. This really opened the eyes of the boys in particular in my class to realising about the upcoming World Cup and really created an interest for them in this!
