I have seen gender stereotypes in many ways. I can recall an event when I decided we would go cooking. A boy stated how cooking is only for girls. I didnt expect a response like that. After that I taught the children how everyone is equal and everyone can participate in any activity regardless of gender. There are no activities that just one gender can participate in. We are all entitled to participate in every activity regardless of gender. I think we need to work closely with others to teach the idea of gender equality. There needs to be more resources gathered on this topic and we need to make an effort to ensure we participate in a wide range of activities so we can encourage particpation from all genders and encourage inclusivity.
