Ni poupées, ni super-héros! : mon premier manifeste anti-sexiste

(No dolls, no superheroes! My first anti-sexist manifesto) Book not yet available in English


Girls are allowed to prefer constructions sets to pink dollies. They are allowed not to be princesses but dragon slayers. And boys are allowed to dream of their “princess charming” and to love flowers. Girls can be strong and boys can be sensitive.


Because it’s never too soon to combat stereotypes, the collection “Jamais trop tôt” (Never too soon) features a number of straight-talking picture books. To help girls and boys forge a new anti-sexist, egalitarian society together, Ni poupées ni super-héros merges two earlier books from the series that are now out of print, On n’est pas des poupées, mon premier manifeste féministe (“We’re not dolls, my first feminist manifesto”) and On n’est pas des super-héros, mon premier manuel antisexiste (“We’re not superheros, my first anti-sexist handbook”). The result is a book that equips children with the tools to be what they want to be, not what others think they should be [source: publisher]. But it’s important to be aware of reverse stereotypes: girls can be whatever they want to be and still like pink!
