Abstract

This paper aims to discuss the role of parents in constructing gender identity in early childhood. Based on the existing literature, the writers argue that parents still tend to treat boys and girls differently, reflecting a patriarchal culture in the society. This paper uses a post structuralist feminist theory. From the literature review, it is found that to overcome gender inequality it is important for parents to understand gender equities. The main result of this literature review is the importance of understanding, voicing and implementing gender equality values in early childhood in the community, starting from parents at home to minimize social inequality.
