Overcoming Stereotypes

How does the media portray gender and relationships? How do societal influences affect our understanding of gender stereotypes?

This lesson will help students recognise that some segments of society may inaccurately reflect the efforts needed to maintain healthy relationships, leading to skewed assumptions of sexual messages and connotations within relationships. Students will understand how societal influences can skew one’s understanding of gender stereotypes (e.g. boys should not cry, and are to suppress emotional sensitivity so as not to seem weak; girls are physically weak and unathletic, and downplay achievements so as to fit in).
