Here’s an interesting article in the Huffington Post recently. It caught my eye because this is what we’re talking about in my Multicultural Information Services class this semester. The article features an articulate 9-year-old who can calmly point out sexism to her classmates and a discussion of old-fashioned books that are worth reading, but that they warrant an explanation of how they’re a product of their time. It makes me think of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle – I loved those books as a kid, but rereading them as an adult made me realize how dated they are. The sexism and gender roles seem apparent to me, though I know that’s not the intended focus of the stories.
