Gender in the Blender

Gender and diversity

'Gender in the blender' is an innovative project on gender dealing with diversity. The basis is not the traditional divide between men and women, but the unique identity of the individual.

Each individual is a combination of different gender aspects: sex, cultural influences, sexual orientation and psychological perception.

The blender symbolises this individual mix. This perspective takes into account individual differences within the categories of male and female, avoiding stereotyping and combating stigmatisation. It is diversity thinking applied to the gender theme; differences between people are not levelled out but recognised and valued.

In addition to the website the "gender in the blender" project comprises an educational tool on gender diversity and transgender for schools. The website focuses on transgender issues, the educational tool offers various teaching modules to work on gender diversity at school and in the classroom.
