Recap on Gender Today’s Timetable Task 1: What can you remember? Task 2: Gender in the Media Break Task 3: Group Discussion Task 4: Report to the class: What have you found / decided?
1.Why might gender roles in the UK be seen as a moral issue? 2.In what ways are young boys treated differently which might affect them later in life? 3.“The media in the UK tends to stereotype gender roles” Do you agree? Give two reasons for your answer. 4. What problems do women face in the UK just because they are female? 5.What does the term gender stereotyping mean? 6.“In the past, girls did not get the same education as boys.” Why was this? 7.“Everyone having the opportunity to learn the same skills has improved family life.” Do you agree? Give two reasons for your answer. 8.You have studied a viewpoint independent of religion. Why might it support the idea of separate gender roles within the family?
Task 2: Gender in the media Think about two of your favourite television shows (maybe one British and the other American?). List the main characters of the show and state their job / role & position in the group / family. Write a statement showing what this shows us. Discuss
Task 3: Group Discussion Discuss the following questions in your group (of 3 or 4). Think of what you have already learned and anything you might want to look into further.
1.‘Over the past fifty years in British, women have had increasing opportunities in education, they can enter parliament and rise to high positions, they can be self-supporting, and can choose whether and how many children to have. In every meaningful way women are now equal.’ To what extent do you agree with this? 2.Are there things which women are better at than men and other things which men are better at than women? Give examples. 3.‘Sex discrimination is unchristian’. How far do you agree?
Task 4: Report to the class What has your group found / decided from your discussion?

Equal pay for women still 57 years away
