Children are able to ‘self-socialise’, which means that children’s books and toys … influence how children think about themselves in the world.From two years old, children begin forming concepts of gender and gender difference. By age five, children develop their gender identity and become aware of gender differences and by seven, children are developing rigid ideas of gender.
People’s attitudes to gender equality have significant impacts on their attitudes to violence against women.
