SELF-HELP / Anxieties & Phobias
- In 2013, Disney released its most egalitarian film to date - but 59% of all the lines in Frozen are spoken by male characters.
- 57% of children's books published annually have central male characters; just 31% have central female characters.

Raising your child beyond the limitations placed on them by gender is, let's face it, an uphill battle. If you don't know where to start, or how to start, you will find inspiration, insight and plenty of practical strategies in Smashing Stereotypes. From navigating the gendered constructs that dominate children's films, television and media generally, to choosing appropriate and stimulating toys beyond the binary divide, this accessible and relatable book will make the whole process much less daunting.

Based on interviews with, and research by, some of the best thought-leaders from the fields of psychology, neuroscience and education, the insights in this book will not only open the eyes of any parent or caregiver, they will inspire you to help your child to look at the world in a critical, creative and empowered way. Free from the restraints of the stereotypes that surround gender, your child has the opportunity to reach their true potential - and this is the book that you need to launch them on that journey.

Virginia Mendez is a mother of two and the co-founder of www.thefeministshop.com. She is the author of two books for children on gender, and consent. As a children's author, she has spoken to over 2000 school children, promoting critical thinking and inviting them to understand what is behind their already-formed ideas about things being for boys and things being for girls. She has spoken at the Human Rights Festival, has been published in both Forbes and The Sunday Times, and is part of the thought leader program 'Ladies who Launch'. She has been featured in Women in Business and she is frequently invited to podcasts and YouTube channels as a guest speaker. Virginia is part of the Global Equality Collective, and DiverseEducators. She has been recognized as one of the 145 Inspiring Women Leaders of 2020 by Diverse In Globaland and won an award as one of the Top 100 UK #iAlso f:Entrepreneurs in 2020.
