    Thanks for designing this. I find it highly problematic that the only two professions to show an image of a woman are 'shop assistant' and 'teacher'. I refuse to expose my students to these gender norms and sterotypes. they see them enough as it is. I invite you to challange these and remake the sheet with a more diverse set of people in these roles.

      Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, Opal. I've mentioned this to the team and they will be working on the resource to show the expansive and differing roles of all people, reflecting what we see in our society. Thanks once again.
