Gender Stereotype Detective Activities

These Gender Stereotype Detective Activities, developed by our partners at Lifting Limits, are for use at home and encourage children to challenge gender stereotypes at home: in books they read, TV they watch and language they hear. They will also help your child’s critical thinking skills, when they start to think about the stereotypical roles in which men and women, and girls and boys, are often shown.

The activities are aimed at 7-12 year olds but you’ll know your own child – younger children may enjoy them too, especially if they have older siblings to do them with.

We recommend you read Lifting Limits' Guide for Families before getting started on these activities, and have it to hand to come back to whenever you need to.

The activities are available in English, Arabic, Spanish, French, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, and Urdu.
