Gender Stereotyping

Gender Stereotypes are simplistic generalizations about the personality traits, attributes, characteristics, abilities, value and roles of men and women.

Gender Stereotyping can be discriminatory because it limits individual freedom and potential, pressuring us to conform to preconceived notions about the roles of men and women (in the home, in the workplace, in our relationships) and preventing us from exploring all our talents and skills.

Can you identify some of the ways in which gender stereotyping has influenced your choices or negatively impacted your life?
