Lekhika Chaudhary on Gender Stereotypes

Tough new rules on gender stereotyping in advertising are being introduced to end outdated expectations of women cleaning and washing while men struggle to do basic domestic duties.


These stereotypes can be harmful and perpetuate negative stereotypes, especially for young people. The new standards will not stop all stereotyping but they will ban certain scenarios.

For example, a woman with sole responsibility for clearing up family mess, a man failing to do basic household chores, or an advert suggesting an activity is inappropriate for boys or girls because it is often associated with the other sex.

It has been months since Article 50 was triggered. Yet the UK and EU are still at odds over the first items on the agenda, and little progress is being made.


EU negotiator Michel Barnier said the UK had not been clear enough about where it stands on these issues and this was frustratingly hampering progress. Barnier has requested clarification and details, something with the UK negotiators are noticeably lacking.

We’ve essentially ordered Brexit, but have no demands or plans set out, and Downing Street remains quiet.


Listener Dean messaged the show saying that the issue with Brexit is that nobody who campaigned for it can deliver it. Here’s what Benji Hyer had to say...
