Challenging gender stereotypes

In the library this month we will be looking at gender stereotypes in books and asking pupils to decide “Are some books aimed at a particular gender, and why?” Pupils will be examining different front covers and deciding whether they think this makes them aimed at certain genders. We will talk about whether this is right, or if pupils think these are based on outdated stereotypes and gender bias. A selection of non-fiction books will be available to borrow to really get pupils thinking about this topic.
