UPDATE: Sexism in toys

9 07 2011

As an update to my previous post about sexism in the toy industry, I would like to share a few links.

Firstly, here is a more detailed study on the gender stereotypes promoted through toys.

The Pigtail Pals blog has the slogan “Redefine Girly” and is well worth following.

Pink Stinks is another great website. They campaign to challenge the “culture of pink”, enthuse girls about the opportunities available to them, improve girls’ self-esteem and self-confidence, raise their ambitions and provide positive role models.
