Some very interesting points here Eimear. We do still live in a very gender stereotypical society. In ways we have moved forward but in other ways the stereotypes still very much exist – like what you said about the ‘strong’ boys moving the furniture or the ‘maternal’ girls comforting those who are hurt. It is an interesting topic, as I myself am still guilty of often stereotyping certain aspects of society based on gender. I need to be aware of this in the classroom and make sure my views are always based on equality regardless of the genders of the group of children before me.
