FV 120 INTERVIEW: Prince.sse Si Je Veux – Raising humans beyond gender stereotypes (Part 1)
Listen now
Buy Full Notes Juliana founded the project "Prince.sse Si Je Veux" to help parents and teachers educate and encourage children between 5 and 12 years old to make their own choices by freeing them from gender stereotypes. You may be surprised to see how ingrained sexism is in our everyday life, and how, despite all our efforts, we as parents may be reinforcing such gender-related clichés - very innocently and subconsciously. It is very important to become aware of this since the way we raise our children often directly impacts their adult life. In this first part, Juliana talks about her background - both linguistic and professional, and how Prince.sse Si Je Veux was born. (We'll also explain why there's a dot sign in the middle of the first word!) Make sure you listen to the introduction to learn several interesting French idiomatic expressions!
