    A gender stereotype is a widely held belief or generalisation about the behaviours, characteristics and roles performed by women and men.

    Female stereotypical roles include being emotional, caring and in need of protection. Male stereotypical roles include being rational, career driven and strong. These assumptions can be negative (e.g., women are irrational, men are insensitive) or seemingly benign (e.g., women are nurturing, men are leaders). However, all stereotyping can be limiting.

    Gender stereotypes originate from local culture and traditions. Children learn what constitutes female and male behaviour from their family and friends, the media, and institutions including schools and religious bodies. The prevalence of gender stereotypes in our culture can have an adverse effect on both girls and boys, who are constantly bombarded with messages about how they should look, behave, and play according to their gender. These socially accepted and often unconscious ideas start to form in infancy.

    The seminar will focus on the impact of gender stereotypes and unconscious bias on our own thinking in general and start to address the impact this can have in the violence against women and girls’ field of work.
