Gender Inequality in Sport

October 8, 2018

This week's Monday Minute with Miss Meagan features Mr Cole! We brought Mr Cole in to talk about his experiences with Gender Inequality in Sport (yes, dance is a sport!).

 

We see it all the time, whether it happens to us or friends of ours, or it is on social media. Boys in the hockey dressing rooms teasing "twinkle toes", or the parents in the stands "advising" that the girl on the field should tuck in her ponytail so she is tired higher. What?!?! Yep, we all know it happens. But what do you do if it is you, or your kiddo that is the target in these situations?

 

Mr Cole has been through it. Teasing as he left hickey early to make it to dance practice. showing up late because he was at dance. Missing a tournament because he was at a dance competition. Yep. Been there, done and heard that.
