About the Event
Join Gender Equality Perth and fellow parents, parents-to-be, relatives and carers in a friendly, welcoming space to start a conversation around equality issues in the context of raising children. Whether you have never thought about gender equality or you are an equality activist, all are welcome and all have a part to play in creating an equal world for the next generation. This group is aimed at antenatal parents/carers and parents/carers of children under 5. Other relatives and early years professionals are also very welcome to join.
The purpose of the group is to foster discussion around gender equality and young children, with the intent of raising awareness of what the issues are and how our unconscious biases may be showing up in everything from the words we use to the toys we choose.
Each group session will have a different theme, i.e. media, toys, parent roles etc. Month one will provide an introduction to the topic as a whole. Participants are welcome to attend individual sessions or the entire programme.
It is FREE to attend but booking is required. You only need one ticket per Zoom screen. You are very welcome to have as many parents/guardians/relatives/carers/interested parties participating from the same screen.
We know attending events like this can be hard with little ones at home, so please do whatever you need to in order to make this work for you. Little ones on screen or in the background are entirely welcome, breastfeeding and bottle feeding welcome, and don't worry at all about dipping in and out if you need to see to your young people!
This event is supported by the Perth Common Good Fund.
