Conference | For a non-sexist education

20 October
Non-sexist Education
Contenu sous forme de paragraphes

Meeting with Manuela Spinelli (MCF Rennes 2, Co-founder Parents & Féministes) and Amandine Hancewicz (Co-founder and President Parents & Féministes)

From birth, children are identified with a gender and from this identification comes a socialization that is, even today, strongly differentiated. What is expected of a girl? And from a boy? Do we offer the same toys to children? The same clothes? Why do we do it? And what kinds of stories do they read? And again: what models do they have in front of them, every day, at home, at school, on TV? By digging deeper, we quickly realize that this gendered education is an obstacle to the full development of the child and, by widening our gaze, we discover that it is at the root of social inequalities.

This intervention will allow us to address the stereotypes linked to the feminine and masculine and to analyze how they are conveyed in the education of children. What are the stakes - individual, social and political - of a non-sexist education?


The conference will be translated live into French Sign Language.
