End Gender Stereotypes Before They Begin

Thank you for sharing this video! It was actually beautiful to see the young girls have wide smiles on their faces and the young boys having a surprised look on their face. I think it is incredibly important to teach children beginning at a young age that women can have jobs or roles other than teachers, moms, chefs, etc. What I loved most about the video is how interactive the women were with the young students. Especially at a young age, it can be hard to disassociate people from their jobs so I think it is important for the children to see that these women can be firefighters and pilots and surgeons. This way, they are able to see that a woman can be those jobs without automatically assuming they are men. It is critical that we expose children to alternatives to stereotypes. I hope that this moment sticks with the children and encourages them to think against stereotypes later in life.
