Genderatwork explores new fields and develops new applications in pursuit of greater gender equality in our society. Our projects are one way of doing this.

Girls and boys in kindergarten: recognizing the difference and working on equality.

Teaching staff and school boards attach high priority to equality for boys and girls. However, putting this principle into practice is not always easy in a society governed by our everyday stereotypes and expectations. Though boys and girls may be quite different, what we do not want is for them to become locked into stereotyped roles. This project aims to take an in-depth look at the specific situation in nursery schools. How exactly can you work in a positive and constructive way in the classroom and at school, in a way that broadens the horizons of our children? And how can you get parents involved?
As of November 2011, you will find the results of this project under the section Publications: an awareness-raising brochure on gender issues at kindergarten, including practical tips.
