South African researchers release a study on how South African families think about gender (in)equality at home

Here is a journal article on how South African parents and children talk about and do gender and gender equality at home.

The researchers visited families to hear how parents and children talk with each about equality, masculinity and femininities.

Parents were asked questions such as ‘Do you think there should be a difference in how boys and girls are raised?’ and children were asked, ‘Do you think boys and girls should be treated differently?’ The article reports some fascinating answers to these and other questions about gender and gender equality.

The article was published in the journal Global Health Action and can be accessed for free here.

  1. I think we are heading in the right direction as more and more generations begin to “catch up”. But we must be cognizant that because of the institutionalized patriarchy system that was perpetrated for 400 years had caused deep rooted cracks in gender to find mechanisms to deal with the effects of gender discrimination.
