Crowd-research project on sexism in schools
RedSquirrelRoar · 21/06/2021 19:12
An organisation called End Sexism in Schools is researching the discrepancy in male- and female-authored books featured in school curriculums and they are looking for volunteers to help do internet-based research - even if it’s just for 30 mins. Thought there might be some mumsnetters who can help out?
I’m not affiliated with them, just thought it was interesting! So far, they are finding that kids are studying about 3 books written by men for every book written by a woman

Oh interesting. Crowd-sourced research is becoming quite popular I think. I took part in the Standing for Women one and the #Don'tSubmitToStonewall.
It's clear grassroots organisations need support and I'd be interested in this one, I'm very worried about sexism in schools, from girls being told to where 'modesty shorts', to porn and sex ed being based on porn practices, to sexual assault. It's an epidemic, as shown by the rapid submission numbers to Everyone's Invited.
Thanks for sharing OP, I'll check it out.
