Use this BBC video about a photo project to spark discussion and explore female stereotypes. 

Teaching ideas

  • Before you watch the video, have a general discussion about how women are generally portrayed in the media today. Do they think women have the same opportunities as men? If not, why not? 

  • Watch the video then discuss their thoughts about the project. 

  • What other areas of contemporary society do they think would benefit from a similar project and what do they think could be done? Think about magazines, fashion, work, social media, music, television etc. 

  • Set them a research project.

  2. Alternatively, set them a speaking and listening presentation task with the same research areas.
