Una de las principales carencias de la educación actual es la deficiente coeducación para la Igualdad, sin cuya práctica niñas y niños repiten y seguirán repitiendo estereotipos, funciones y papeles de género masculino y femenino, con lo que ello conlleva de reproducción de la desigualdad, la discriminación y la violencia de género.

Quizás por eso, nos preguntamos a menudo: ¿Son ellas y ellos más sexistas que la generación que los educa? Si ninguna instancia socializadora -familias, sistema educativo y sociedad mediática- se ocupa de establecer unas enseñanzas y aprendizajes coherentes con la Igualdad, la gente joven no podrá aprenderla. La responsabilidad de coeducar es colectiva e individual a un tiempo.

Con la pedagogía coeducadora que aquí se propone se trata de aprender a neutralizar y abandonar vicios como el del androcentrismo, el machismo y el sexismo para entrar por la puerta grande en la era de la Igualdad, beneficio y ventaja social ya indiscutible a nivel internacional, como parte del desarrollo humano sostenible.

Contemporary picture books provide opportunities for young people to encounter strong female voices in a variety of times, places, roles, and literary styles. The following books go beyond just having female protagonists. They are not only gender-fair; they are multicultural, international, and represent a diversity of ages, classes, and personalities. Some assist us in the process of recovering women's history, others celebrate women's forms of expression, others tell of a girl's relationship with her mother or father, and still others offer a new perspective on the older woman in the lives of children.
