New Zealand Premiere

Whether you are born male or female seems to play a massive role in pre-determining the life you will end up experiencing - and the situation is getting worse. In this groundbreaking new mini-series Dr Javid Abelmoneim poses some of the most profound questions we are facing today. Is the way we treat boys and girls in childhood the real reason we still haven't achieved true equality between men and women in adult life?
Using a pioneering approach from Sweden, Dr. Javid takes over a class of 30 seven-year olds and, sometimes battling teachers and parents, he creates a gender neutral school that will turn conventions on their head. Will boys wear tutus? Will girls play football? He also explores typical male and female careers and takes his mission onto the shop floor, challenging retailers to ditch the ‘pink for girls, blue for boys’ stereotypes that could be part of what holds kids back.
