In this episode

Breaking boy & girl stereotypes in the classroom. Everyone contributes to building the self-confidence and self esteem of girls.

Dr Jennifer Hartstein explains how we have to challenge our own views and overcome conversations around “locker room talk” and then challenge young people to be critical thinkers and actors themselves.
