Gender Equality in Ireland

Do you call yourself a feminsit? Girls, Orlaith Barry and Aislinn Carty from Beaufort Loreto School asked that question at our Youth Summit and not suprisingly they got a strong response from the audience. As part of their BT Young Scientist Project they raised the issue that girls schools, boys schools and coed schools can have different outcomes for genders. STEM classes are often not available at girls schools, while boys are often not found in home economics classes. They argue it's time to start asking oursevles is gender equality still an issue we need to seriously address. One of the most alarming findings, was that girls often make out as though they are not as smart as boys. Does this happen where you go to school? Let us know.
