“Orgullosa de mí” by SM is back, an initiative aimed at teachers, families, children and young people, to promote equality through reading.
SM highlights a selection of children's and youth literature books, starring girls and women who break stereotypes.
Eight out of ten Spanish young people demand more training on gender equality in educational centers, according to the Flash Survey. A young perspective on current issues, from the SM Foundation.
Madrid, March 2, 2023.- Can you imagine a world in which women hold the most important positions and men take care of the children and care? Where the streets and schools are named after illustrious women and there has never been a male Prime Minister, although there have been some ministers; where grammar marks the use of the feminine as generic; where men's soccer competitions do not interest the media; where the physique of men is questioned daily... It sounds like the world is upside down, right?
That's the premise of award-winning French author and teacher Florence Hinckel's novel. Inside Out turns reality upside down so that boys and girls question gender inequalities and want to change the world in which they live. The protagonist of the book, a girl with a twin brother, writes at her father's request about her world, and ends up realizing that, contrary to what she thought at first, men have it much more difficult than women to get ahead.
Youth demand training on gender equality
The revelation that Lea ends up having about the importance of moving forward so that there is true equality between boys and girls is shared by the majority of young people in our country. 87% think gender equality should be just as important for men as it is for women, according to data from the Flash Survey. A young perspective on current issues, from the SM Foundation.
Eight out of ten young Spaniards state that more importance should be given to training on gender equality in schools. For this, SM returns with the "Proud of me" campaign, which promotes equality through reading. And it does so with titles that turn the world upside down to detect and give visibility to everyday discrimination, small and large.
From SM we believe that education is key to change things. For this reason, we take special care in our publications, in the use of language and in our characters. We bet on stories where there are no differences between "boys' things" and "girls' things", since for more than eighty-five years we have been working to educate in the values of equality.
Inside Out is one of the 2023 novelties of SM's "Proud of Me" initiative, which brings together a wide selection of SM children's and youth literature books that educate on equality. Discover here the rest of the stories starring strong and independent girls and women who break stereotypes.
