Hannah Webster who's an education expert for a private schools organisation, said that styling your baby in blue for a boy and pink for a girl is harmful because it steers them towards certain roles within society.

The expert spoke out in a recent interview for Attain Magazine:

'There will be those who say that pink and blue colour coding does not matter - that it is just a fact that boys like blue and girls like pink. They are wrong.'

But why is pink for girls so wrong, we hear you ask?

According to Hannah:

'If we designate a particular colour to a gender, it leads us to designate all manner of other things by gender too."

What things?

"The result is girls and boys read different kinds of books, play with different kinds of toys, study different subjects, consider different occupations, have different roles within the workplace and family and are ultimately valued differently by society."

But can wearing a colour when we're young really affect us that much?
