The Kerala government has introduced gender-neutral images in school textbooks, showcasing men participating in traditionally female domestic roles like cooking and kitchen work alongside women. This initiative aims to challenge gender stereotypes and promote equality from a young age. Students and teachers have responded positively to the updated textbooks, praising them for breaking stereotypes and encouraging shared responsibilities in households. The move is part of broader efforts by the CPI government to promote gender-neutral education, which includes reforms like gender-neutral uniforms and transitioning to mixed-gender schools. Kerala's initiative reflects its commitment to fostering inclusivity and equity in society.
