Teach Your Children Well


Teach Your Children Well

School's almost done; teaching never is. Cool video from the U.K.'s Inspiring the Future: Redraw the Balance campaign, which seeks to highlight ongoing gender stereotypes by asking kids to draw firefighters, surgeons, fighter pilots et al and then confronting them with the real thing. You kinda know what's coming, but the kids' faces are something else. Point taken:


"61 pictures were drawn as men, 5 were drawn an women."

Them kids are pretty good. Quick google search of those three professions shows they got the real life percentages right.
