Boys Who Twirl poster setISBN: bwPostersA3
This set of 8, A3 size full-colour posters (download only) seeks to break down gender stereotypes, and encourage adults and children alike, to celebrate traditionally perceived ‘feminine’ traits as traits belonging to all genders.
The posters can be displayed as a set or individually e.g. in kindergartens, schools, workplaces, and community spaces where both adults and children can view and discuss. Labelling children through gender stereotyping restricts all genders developing into their true and authentic selves. The posters focus on ‘boys’ so that both children and adults view ‘traditionally’ feminine traits as a strength, and understand that these traits will benefit those that identify as boys every bit as much as those that identify as girls. We know from research that gender stereotyping, where one gender believes they have power over another, forms the basis of domestic and family violence. These posters set out to break down gender stereotyping, so all children grow into caring and respectful adults.
Suitable for ages 3+.
