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 - "This is firefighter Simon!" - and then confronting them with the real thing. You kinda know what's coming, but the kids' stunned, joyful, whoah-who-woulda-thought faces are something else. Point taken: Old tropes die hard.
