Brief description of the activity:

The purpose here will be to understand what good communication practices are on this issue, starting from the concept of stereotype.
The stereotype is a preconceived, recurrent and conventional idea, a rigid whole of beliefs transmitted socially within a culture of reference, on what are and must be behaviors, roles, occupations, traits, physical appearance of a person, in relation to his/her gender membership. Stereotypes risk to limit the opportunities of people concerning what their social and individual aspirations and opportunities are and can contribute to the creation of gender-based discrimination. For ex.: women doing housework and men watching sport on TV, women taking care of children and men going to work, etc.
