GENDER CHALLENGE BADGE

(currently under development)

Take a minute to think about the people in your life around you: do the boys and girls, men and women whom you see have the same opportunities? Are they treated in the same way? In this Gender Challenge Badge we will explore these questions and think about how we can have a more equal world for everyone. Gender simply means the social roles that are assigned to men and women. Gender roles vary from culture to culture and have changed over time too.

In this Gender Challenge Badge we will think about gender roles in our own culture, as well as those around the world. We will explore why inequalities sometimes exist and what we can do to overcome them and make the world a fairer place for everybody. So get involved and begin this Challenge Badge: find out how YOU can contribute to a gender equal world!

This badge is currently being developed. If you would like to be one of the first to pilot test the badge, write to us here.
