Apprendre à identifier les stéréotypes de genre pour promouvoir l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes

Abstract : The fields of study of this paper are Moral and Civic Education and teaching of equality between women and men. The analysis is from a sociological and philosophical angle. The aim of the study is to determine whether youth literature as a support during a philosophical discussion can help to fight gender stereotypes among pupils in the context of gender equality education. For this purpose, pupils' representations of the daily practices of men and women are tested. A test is conducted before and after the sequence, whose main objectives are the promotion of equality between men and women, and to ensure that pupils are able to identify sexist elements in a narrative text. The analysis of the evolution of the representations by activities shows that the stereotypical vision of the pupils which links an activity to a genre is decreasing. However, at the end of the study only 9 activities out of 21 are no longer recognized as stereotyped. Similarly, with the analysis of the evolution per pupil, we observe a positive evolution of the majority of the class towards a non-gendered representation of the activities. However, pupils who have attained real non-gendered representation represent only 38% of students. Even if the quantified analysis is not entirelly conclusive, it is nuanced by the rather optimistic qualitative feeling. In conclusion, this sequence is to be coupled with a second one on media education and the identification of stereotypes in the media, in order to counter the over-exposure of pupils to gender stereotypes in their social environment.
