Sexism ‘rebranded’ as something ‘fashionable’, warn UK teachers

Teachers in the UK have warned that young people are being damaged by an over-sexualised culture.



London: Teachers in the UK have warned that young people are being damaged by an over-sexualised culture.

The National Union of Teachers annual conference will hear claims sexism is being “rebranded” as something fashionable and mainstream.

Delegates are to criticise the ‘raunch culture’ of lap-dancing clubs and pole dancing.

According to the BBC, the National Union of Teachers will hear warnings from teachers that “sexism and inequality are still a huge factor in shaping women’s lives”.

The conference will hear claims that old-fashioned sexism has not gone away, but has been re-invented into something that appears to be “ironic or empowering,” the report said.

There will be concerns that pupils are growing up in a culture where pornographic images are widely available, cosmetic surgery is advertised and there is a “fixation” with staying slim, it added.
