Gender Sensitization

In a patriarchal country like India, where stark gender roles, overt gender discrimination, and devolution of women and girls is ingrained into our daily lives, it is extremely important to identify and address this problem from a very young age. Boys and girls start their gender identities from birth. The upbringing at home also influences them. While egalitarian gender roles may not be present at home, the school can become a space of transformation where children, especially those hailing from disadvantaged backgrounds, learn to question gender roles, identify areas of gendered discrimination and work towards changing them.
