Tolerance of Gender

This assembly explains that everyone is of equal value and worth as a human being. Yet despite this, some people behave in sexist ways. At its most extreme this includes sex selection of embryos or even female infanticide, but the assembly considers everyday sexism that students may have experienced themselves, whether they are male or female. The assembly also discusses the issue of domestic abuse and relates it to intolerance or lack of respect. Students are told about sources of support, in school and out of school, that can help them with these issues.
