Stop gender stereotyping


Gender stereotypes refer to widely held beliefs or assumptions about the characteristics, roles, and behaviors that are typically associated with men and women in a particular society or culture. These stereotypes can be limiting and reinforce traditional gender norms and expectations. It’s important to note that these stereotypes are generalizations and do not apply to every individual.

Gender stereotyping is harmful to individuals and society as a whole, as it limits personal and professional growth, promotes inequality, harms mental health, promotes harmful behaviors, and perpetuates harmful cultural norms.

Women are more likely than men to be judged or singled out for not having excellent social skills or being emotionally available for others—traits that are expected of women. This poster is to remind people not to stereotype women  based on their beliefs, culture and experience.
