Dr Javid Abdelmoneim takes his gender-neutral mission out of the classroom and into the home as this two-part series concludes. He asks the parents to put all their children’s gendered toys in a sack.
For Maisie, this means pretty much her whole pink palace of a bedroom is packed away.
‘She can aspire to be more than a princess,’ says Dr Javid as he stuffs another princess dress into the sack.
Not everyone is going to agree with him, but Dr Javid certainly makes a very convincing argument about how parents can limit their boys and girls by unconsciously buying into the pink/blue divide.
The final results are amazing – talk about telly at its best.
