Unlimited Potential: Report of the Commission on Gender Stereotypes and Early Childhood

Society teaches our children life-limiting stereotypes from the moment they are born. Our expert Commission on Gender Stereotypes in Early Childhood came together in 2019 to build a new consensus on the impact gender stereotypes and intersecting inequalities have in our children’s formative years and how, together, we can end them.

On the 15th December we published our final report. We set out the case for change, the evidence about how gender stereotypes are perpetuated, and promote practical solutions to change childhood and change lives.
