Kicking Little Rocks is a children’s book that presents a father and his daughter, addressing how certain gender norms and expectations limit the daughter’s desires and dreams. Through dialogue and affection, the father and daughter challenge old concepts and build the foundations for an education based on equality and respect for individual personality. The story is a product of the collective work of a group of 17 girls who live in Rio de Janeiro and can be used by parents or teachers to talk about gender equality.
