Girls are rubbish at mental arithmetic… Boys don’t cry… Girls don’t play football… Boys aren’t afraid of anything… To fight gender stereotypes, ADOSEN Prévention Santé MGEN , an association for pupil well-being, is launching the second season of its “Stéréotypes/Stéréomeufs” campaign about women and gender stereotypes.

The association wanted a second season that kept the original format of an online series composed of 7 episodes, created by and for those active in the area of education. It is also providing the educational community with a set of educational tools.

The characters depicted in this second season are pupils at the Collège Gérard Philipe middle school, in the 18th arrondissement (district) of Paris, which served as a set for most of the episodes. The major involvement of pupils and educational teams made this second season into a very human and engaging adventure, supported by all of the school community. What’s more, one of the episodes was written and designed by middle school pupils from the Hérault department, who were winners of the national script writing competition.

ADOSEN wants this fight against gender stereotypes to be shared as widely as possible in middle schools and high schools in France, in other extra-curricular contexts, and even in families too! With this new season, it aims to broaden the fight and combat all forms of discrimination.
