 Respect and Equity: It All Starts Here

Image1

Description

City of Melbourne recently delivered a pilot project to examine age-appropriate ways of promoting respect and equity among young children. The project highlights the importance of working with children and their families to build safer, more equal communities.

Global research tells us that some of the key drivers of violence against women are the structures, attitudes and behaviours that reflect disrespect for women and the acceptance of stereotypical gender roles and norms. We also know that by the time children start primary school, many stereotypes and sexist beliefs have already begun to form.

Come and find out more about how and why we should support children to have respectful and equitable relationships at this special, free Children's Week event.

Join a facilitated panel discussion and Q&A calling on the expertise and experience of parents, childhood educators and advocates. The panel will take up the themes and findings from the City of Melbourne pilot, including how we can call out those gender stereotypes that limit us all.

Children are welcome and catering is provided.
