JESS CALLS FOR END TO #SEXISMINSCHOOLS

January 30, 2018 - 1:27pm By: OfficeTeam

Yardley MP Jess Phillips is supporting the National Education Union and UK Feminista campaign to end #sexisminschools.
 
A recent report was launched called "It's Just Everywhere - a Study on Sexism in Schools and How We Tackle It".
 
The report's findings show that sexist language and gender stereotypes are a typical feature of school culture, contributing to a climate in which sexual harassment is commonplace, and that 37% of girls at mixed-sex schools have been sexually harassed while at school.
 
Jess Phillips MP said:
 
"We need to take urgent action to tackle sexism in schools to make a difference for the young people in our local area."
