Today Playtime welcomes Pihla Hintikka, a Finnish journalist, writer and scriptwriter specialized in culture and lifestyle, and author of a guide to feminist parenting. We had the chance to talk with Pihla about the gender neutral education.
After two plays produced on stage in Finland, she published her first novel with Otava editions company in 2020.
Together with Elisa Rigoulet, they wrote « Filles-Garçons même education”, that is from a hand a guide to feminist parenting and a book that denounces the influence of gender constructs in early childhood education.
We all have a role to play in gender equality and it starts now! This book gives parents precious advices on how to remove their guilt and how to accompany their children in who they really are.
Through this instruction manual full of anecdotes and good advice, the two authors teach us how to deconstruct the gender stereotypes that force our children to adapt their personalities to what the norm wants of them at a very young age.
