Young Girls to Be Taught About Gender – Finally

Good news: according to the Independent, England will be introducing compulsory gender education in classrooms 2011.

Lessons on equality and domestic violence will be included in health education and all trainee teacherts must learn about gender awareness and domestic violence. The courses will include strategies to help teachers deal with “sexist, sexual and transphobic bullying” in the classroom and schools will be assessed by inspectors on how well they are teaching children about preventing violence aimed at women. The strategy also includes a new campaign to tackle violence in teenagers’ relationships, which will be launched next year and telephone hotlines for stalking and harassment and sexual violence.
