Being Gender Equal

In our session with the kids at Alwar Public School, we got them to read a story by Tale-Weavers around gender equality, called The Little Chef. It was amazing to watch the children themselves conclude that telling a boy not to cry or telling a girl that she didn't smile enough was unfair. We proceeded to talk about how girls and boys are often forced to make certain career choices, certain life choices and the like. It was interesting to watch how many of them centered their conversation around how no career is uniquely / singularly restricted to boys or girls alone.
