The article deals with the concept of transformative equality enshrined in the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) by analyzing its art. 5a. The latter considers gender stereotypes as a real cause of violation of women's rights in the public and private spheres since they influence both common people's and institutional actors’ behaviors (Legislators, Public Administration and Courts). Then the A. investigates what Italy has been doing in recent years to combat gender stereotypes in the educational field, also comparing the Italian legislation with that in force in France. It reaches the conclusion that notwithstanding the introduction of gender education by law n. 107/2015 (art. 1, c. 16), into the Italian legal system there is no compulsory education neither on gender equality nor on sexual and affective education. In this context the CEDAW could help people and institutions already involved in gender education (civil society’s associations, politicians, schools) to stimulate in Italy a cultural change that could results also in a legal change.

Abstract

The article deals with the concept of transformative equality enshrined in the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) by analyzing its art. 5a. The latter considers gender stereotypes as a real cause of violation of women's rights in the public and private spheres since they influence both common people's and institutional actors’ behaviors (Legislators, Public Administration and Courts). Then the A. investigates what Italy has been doing in recent years to combat gender stereotypes in the educational field, also comparing the Italian legislation with that in force in France. It reaches the conclusion that notwithstanding the introduction of gender education by law n. 107/2015 (art. 1, c. 16), into the Italian legal system there is no compulsory education neither on gender equality nor on sexual and affective education. In this context the CEDAW could help people and institutions already involved in gender education (civil society’s associations, politicians, schools) to stimulate in Italy a cultural change that could results also in a legal change.
