Misogyny and Sexism: A Guide for Parents and Educators
Dr Lisa Sugiura, University of Portsmouth
Following increased media and government attention around several high-profile murders of women and violence against women and girls (VAWG), in the UK, ‘misogyny’ is a term that has recently gained prominence. Misogyny is not a new phenomenon, but there is significant misunderstanding about what it is, and this negatively impacts attempts to tackle it. Understanding and defining what misogyny and sexism actually mean is crucial to dismantling them and achieving gender equality.
In this webinar, we explain clearly what the terms mean and what they ‘look like’ in real life. We also give parents and educators tools for recognising and tackling them at home and school.
