Golden Fence Post Award Ceremony 2018

A negative prize for absurd gender marketing

Boys are cool heroes, girls are cute fairies. Women like it gentle, and men have to have meat ... The clichés in gender marketing are far from any rea­li­ty, and yet they still have an effect, since repetition leads to familiarity. Above all children internalize the stereotypical attributions that limit their freedom of choice. The “Goldener Zaunpfahl” (Golden Fence Post) is meant to incite a dialogue about diversity and identity, about belonging and standardizing.
