We have launched our report, ‘We can all be who we want to be’: A whole school approach to challenging gender stereotyping and promoting gender equality in primary schools. The report demonstrates the clear success of the pilot in challenging gender stereotypes from an early age, and that Lifting Limits’ whole school approach is effective in disrupting limiting gendered norms. We now want to share the good news and our recommendations.
Please help us:
- tell your friends, colleagues and networks about Lifting Limits’ successful pilot
- if you’re a parent or educator, tell the schools and teachers you know about Lifting Limits’ successful whole school approach
- share the report with policy makers and influencers at all levels: Government, Local Authorities, Multi-Academy Trusts and teacher training providers
