Inspiring the Future wanted to spread awareness about gender bias and the importance of exposing children to more female role models. In the guise of an art class, we asked school children to draw a firefighter, surgeon, and pilot. Out of 66 drawings, 61 were drawn as men and 5 were women. What the children didn’t know was that the female “teachers” were examples of professionals they were asked to draw. The experiment confirmed an amazing fact: GENDER STEREOTYPES ARE DEFINED BETWEEN 5 AND 7 YEARS OF AGE. It also confirmed that interaction with role models could change children’s perceptions.
