Playing gender: socialization and equality in pre-school education

The research focused on gender socialization in pre-school. It aimed at observing the process of gender socialization in a class whose educator had recently done a training workshop on gender and citizenship. By triggering a qualitative methodology, the study took place in one pre-school class of a private institution. The results suggest that socialization is shaped according to gender roles, which in the institution studied is connected to a traditional logic. Action and educational practices reflect some degree of gender and citizenship awareness but still far from an effective promotion goal.
