The sex discrimination commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick, is calling for tales of knights, princes and princesses to be swapped for stories with gender-equal messages, like women in positions of power and men in more feminine, nurturing roles.

Preschool books and toys could also be audited to determine whether they promote gender stereotypes, under a Victorian government plan to address family violence.
