In this quick 3 Part Primer by Maya Gonzalez, we’ll explore the relationship between language acquisition and gender.
How can we begin using our language to be more inclusive and provide our kids with the skills they need to negotiate oppressive systems?
GEARED TOWARD Grown-ups, especially parents, teachers, and those who regularly work with children
Part 3 also explores an example from a children’s book that unconsciously passes on gender oppression and a lack of consent. This highlights the power of language, the importance of lived experience, and why it’s where we must begin to create real change and equity.
