Kids give hilariously accurate take on gender inequality

What do kids think are the differences between boys and girls?

The organisers of this year's International Women's Day are asking us all to 'Be Bold For Change' when it comes to creating a more equal world.

So who better to ask than schoolkids for bold and brutally honest answers on breaking down gender stereotypes?

Lifestyle visited Sydney's Kyeemagh Public School to get kids' thoughts on why girls can do anything boys can - from playing soccer on the school field to earning the same salary in an office.

Their take on women not getting paid the same as men? "A disgrace!"

Their career ambitions? "Pilot!" "Soccer player!" "Teacher!" "Prime minister!"

Perhaps 8-year-old Aiden said it best when it comes to encouraging girls to reach their full potential.

"Whatever they dream of in their dreams, they can make come true," he said.

Wise words indeed!
