Is Blatant Sexism A Thing In The Mr Men & Little Miss Series?

Is Blatant Sexism A Thing In The Mr Men & Little Miss Series?

If you're a child of the 80's or 90's, or you have kids now, it's safe to assume you'd be familiar with the popular Mr Men & Little Miss series written by British author Roger Hargreaves.

A new study has claimed that the books feature 'gender stereotyping' that may be giving impressionable young readers old fashioned and outdated ideas and values.

The study revealed that the Little Miss characters have to be “saved” in all of the stories more than half the time, while the Mr Men only need saving less than a third of the time.

Mandy & Akmal analysed the study this morning.
