After the discussion we had in class on gender and the emphasis our society puts on distinguishing boys from girls, I was talking to my mom about the topic. I grew up in Sweden and society there tries to enforce more gender equality. My mom mentioned that now Sweden’s government has made an effort to implement some daycare's that are gender neutral. I thought this was an interesting concept, so after doing a little research I came across this article:
This daycare is trying to be gender neutral in the sense of not calling children "boys" or "girls" instead they use the term “friends”. Do you think that having gender neutral daycare's is the first step to becoming a more gender equal society?
