Observations

While we were at the shopping centre, there were a lot of comments from passers by that supported stereotypical behaviour.

There was one instance of sexism where a young girl (maybe 12?) was going to buy Call Of Duty and a random woman approached her a told her she shouldn’t buy the game because ‘Games are for boys, you want to be a proper lady don’t you?’

We also observed quite a lot of agism as adults who went into toy shops without children were treated very differently form obvious parents, and most often not in a positive way.
