Beccy Thompson is using her experiences of sexism to stand up to gender discrimination.
The 17-year-old tells ITV about the need for equality and explains how traditionally held stereotypes of men and women can restrict individuals when it comes to life choices.
‘If you are too loud or too bossy, that’s a bad thing. But if you are a boy and are confident or strong, that’s good,’ explains Beccy, from Bath.
‘I think it’s hard to overcome that and realise that “actually, I can do whatever I want.”
‘Me and my friends have been working with Fixers to get more young people talking about gender equality.’
