Early Years

Zero Tolerance is committed to promoting gender equality and tackling discrimination. We believe that it is never too early to question what is seen as ‘normal’ or what is traditionally expected of boys and girls in our society. In fact, we believe that doing so from a very young age helps to protect children from the negative consequences of inequality and discrimination as they grow into adults.

We work in a variety of ways to promote gender equality in the early years:

  • Our Just like a child guide provides resources to support professionals and parents to raise children who are not limited by outdated or restrictive ideas of what is suitable for boys and for girls.
  • We have conducted research into the views and experiences of parents, carers and those responsible for young children on gender stereotyping; read our reports,  'The Default Setting' or 'Healthy Relationships in Early Primary' for more details.
