Victoria Beckham shared a new drawing of her daughter Harper and received criticism and accusations of promoting gender stereotypes


The American online dictionary Merriam-Webster named “feminism” the word of the year for good reason: the struggle for equality has often become a topic of news in Western media and continues to make itself felt even in seemingly unrelated posts by Victoria Beckham. The 43-year-old designer shared a new drawing of her six-year-old daughter Harper with her Instagram followers, and in response received criticism and accusations of promoting gender stereotypes.

Victoria and Harper attended a master class by illustrator Tatyana Alida, where the daughter of the ex-soloist of the Spice Girls came up with a drawing for an excerpt from a famous children's poem, which says that boys are made of “frogs and snails,” and girls are “of sugar and spices.” and all the best." Harper Beckham made an illustration for the last line.

However, not all of her followers liked the photo. In the comments, accusations rained down on David Beckham's wife - and here are just a few of them:

Do you think that reinforcing gender stereotypes is fun? Sugar, spice and everything cute is not girl power, but gender stereotypes that do not allow you to be mischievous and active, but teach you to be sweet and cuddly. 

Victoria did not get involved in the argument: she is enjoying the preparations for Christmas, especially since her eldest son Brooklyn flew from New York to London to spend the holiday with his family. Today, he shared a photo of Harper making a heart-shaped pizza on Instagram.
