Teaching Kids Feminism

The Guardian ran an interesting story yesterday about gender constructions amongst children. The piece wanted to explore whether it was possible to teach a five year old feminism through the books that children are provided with. Five different books were considered and the piece concluded by stating: 'you can't teach gender studies to small children in a day, but you can make a start'. Of course, we don't know the range of other books that the children had been exposed to but thinking about the perceptions of gender (and sexuality) that children are exposed to should be something that parents think about in terms of providing a mix of texts to young kids.
