Picture books that challenge gender stereotypes
10 brilliant picture books for challenging gender stereotypes.
In support of the You Can Be Campaign – Book Audit(this will open in a new window) we’ve put together 10 brilliant books for challenging gender stereotypes. This campaign is run by Zero Tolerance(this will open in a new window), a Scottish charity working to end men’s violence against women by promoting gender equality and challenging attitudes that normalise violence and abuse.
The You Can Be(this will open in a new window) campaign aims to address gender stereotyping in the early years by raising awareness of harmful stereotypes and offering tips and ideas on how to tackle them. The campaign aims to support parents, carers and childcare professionals to start conversations that will help all children to develop to their full potential.
For more inspiring books please check out the Global Equality Collective book lists(this will open in a new window) compiled by the GEC community of parents, teachers, authors and kids! GEC Best Books is an annual round-up of the absolute best books out there for smashing stereotypes.
