The Heavy Gown by Lauren Midwinter for Plan International challenges gender stereotypes..

November 1, 2021

Lauren Midwinter’s new film for Plan International, The Heavy Gown, is a representation of the gender stereotypes that continue to weigh girls down. The film was made for this year’s International Day of the Girl.

"Education is wasted on girls." "She’s asking for it." "Girls can’t play football." Every day, girls across the world are being taught lessons they never signed up for.

These stereotypes condition how girls feel, behave and see themselves and how they are treated by those around them. But this International Day of the Girl, girls are taking over: the boardroom, the stereotypes that hold them back, and their futures.
