Episode 52 Action Items

It is important that we address cultural and social gender norms wherever we are, and you can take action to influence those norms.

First, follow Pathfinder International on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on their work providing sexual and reproductive health services and addressing gender norms for women and girls around the world.

You can also analyze the way children and young people in your life are impacted by gender norms, and work to actively change those stereotypes by having open conversations and breaking the silence when you see micro-aggressions, acts of violence, and perpetuation of patriarchal norms. 

Keep your language in mind, and make sure that it is inclusive.
