Local MP Alan Campbell has welcomed a recent report by the National Education Union and UK Feminista ‘It’s Just Everywhere” A study on sexism in schools and how to 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.
Alan Campbell MP said “I welcome this important report. While sexism in schools in endemic it is not inevitable. I’m calling on the Government to urgently tackle the problem of sexism in schools and this report is a good place to start.”
