Education and Gendered Cheese – Nipples + Misogyny

We need more women to join the education debate and not just in the audience.

http://voice.adobe.com/videos/DqVeCoftWDm – I made this video called Education and Gendered Cheese.

After I posted it @AnnMroz sent me a message saying ‘you have combined my greatest irritations in one clip’.

I think this clip resonates with many; male and female, because despite having a large female workforce, the decision making process and the debate is still largely male dominated.  There is no excuse to have all male panels debating education anymore.



It was ill-conceived to allow Katie Hopkins a voice debating education when there are so many women in the field with far more experience.  She courted controversy like a pantomime dame to be laughed at – I saw no men paraded in this way. The serious stuff was debated by the men.


The TES recently printed this http://ow.ly/z2s6u.

It discussed how money is being wasted by encouraging girls to become scientists, that if they are interested they will study the subject anyway.  The psychologist thought it was not a natural selection for many female students.  That is all very well until you see gendered cheese.


This is another conference coming up with SSAT (The Schools Network):



This was Belmas at the weekend (July 12/13) great – women in the panel – why should this be unusual?


I leave you with this article written by US blogger, @PLThomasEdD discussing nipples, females and education reform.

  1. The podcasts from the same BELMAS conference – particularly the IGNITE session – and other panels such as ‘Any Questions’ led by education journalist Sue Young – show you really can get the balance right !
