A good example of socialization is the learning of gender roles....

Where this principle has been applied by colleges in cases, male students have already been successful at getting it reversed in court because of its clear display (ironically) of "gender bias." And a principle that women are less morally responsible than men hardly seems like the kind of thing that feminists would want to establish -- although in the previous period radicals like and Andrea Dworkin argued that sex was rape because no women, as victims of the patriarchy, were morally able to give consent.

It is also important to use the new books that have been conceptualized by the NCERT and other publishers using positive examples for men and women. Both textbook and audio-visual material must be checked gender check to see that stereotypes of male doctors and female nurses are not reproduced. We do not want children to ask whether women can indeed drive buses; we have to create a normal atmosphere that does not build on those stereotypes that we have ourselves grown up with. Teachers should not call only the mother of the child for discussions on the children. They must make efforts to involve both fathers and mothers and not request to speak to the mother alone.

Is There a Gender Bias in Your Home

The first step for teachers is to develop gender neutral language. I know teachers with the best of intentions continuing to use “he” and “him” to describe an individual. It is appalling that in a school full of female teachers, one can hardly hear them use her or she when they are teaching. Teachers must consciously use he or she, her or him, and alternate between male and female examples. Gender stereotypes can be perpetuated and strengthened both by men and women. One cannot think that as women we are all practicing gender equality. All learning material has to be scrutinized in a way that supports gender neutral language.

These are just some of the common gender stereotypes that children grow up to hear.

Where bias begins: The truth about stereotypes

Gender bias, also known as sexism, refers to a full range of attitudes, preferences, laws, taboos and behaviors that differentiate and discriminates against the members of either sex.

Gender Discrimination Starts At Home: A Daughter’s Rant

While reversing pervasive gender stereotypes may seem to hold the simple magic key to the vision of a more gender-egalitarian society, it may merely verge on liberal tokenism. Stereotypes operate on the surface while attitudes towards genders are far more entrenched than we know. A boy performing household chores conventionally reserved for girls or a girl undertaking to run an errand for instance, may not lead to rethinking notions of masculinity and femininity on their part. It would most certainly expose them to a different set of gendered tasks on a day-to-day basis but would not fundamentally challenge their deeply held beliefs of their own gendered identity. Further, any deviation from normative gender behaviour is often sought to be disciplined, corrected, and made to conform to. Thus, imagine what happens to boys who are deemed more sensitive, effeminate, or weak, or even girls who are not adequately feminine! Our gender-related anxieties are perhaps more wedded to gender performance and comportment in public than simply role driven at home or outside. Reversing the stereotype is undoubtedly a bold start but it must complement a more profound shift in the way we perceive children who experience their gendered realities through handed down ideas about masculinity and femininity. At the same time, gender-related pleasures as implied by phrases like ‘boys will be boys’ and ‘girls will be girls’ are undeniable. The real battle is to make space for a range of identities, not weighed and assessed necessarily in terms of the binary model.

For years now there have been preconceived notions about genders and the roles each one should play in society, home, workplace, etc.

Gender bias without any doubt begins at home.

It is a well written article and brings out the role of the teacher in not perpetuating gender bias. In fact, I would say that applies to any kind of bias or prejudice we have about appearance (thin, fat, short, tall) or economic status. We need to observe our language in the classroom and step out of her own ingrained beliefs – whatever they may be.
In my opinion, the concept of gender equality is not about both boys and girls (men and women) doing the same things. It is quite natural that they are good at different things (both emotionally and physically) and that should be accepted. While there are numerous examples of girls excelling in male dominated areas and vice versa, life can be lived more fully when men and women complement each other in their roles in the work place, in the family and in the society. It is not about ‘man must wash dishes’ and ‘women must do the plumbing’ but about taking pride in doing either of the things. It is about sharing work in a way that suits them and the situation.
Finally, what matters is that the child becomes a good human being who is able to live happily with herself and others.
