Must watch – If Santa was a woman, could she do the job? The answers will surprise you.

Creative agency Anomaly, based in London, asked children ‘If Santa was a woman, could she do the job?’ they gave surprisingly old fashioned answers. Some even saying she wouldn’t be strong enough and she would get lost!

Some of the responses included:

“Number one, she would get lost in the sky.”

“She’d have to go to the gym first, presents would ‘be too heavy for a lady.”

“I think a lady Santa would be better because she could fit down the chimney quicker.”

“better at bossing around the elves.”

One young girl said: “Santa’s stronger than a girl Santa,” a young boy who disagreed and replied: “How do you know?”

He also said: “Girls aren’t any different than boys.”  (We LOVE this kid!)

Stuart Smith, Anomaly partner and chief strategy officer, said in a statement: “We tested the idea by asking my kids, and their answers were uncomfortably surprising.”

“What started as a bit of elfish fun about one issue, surfaced another. Who and what are shaping our children’s gender perceptions?”

  • love the kid that said “she would get a headache”…LOL


  • That is so cute.. love how some of the girls say “of course she could do it” but the boys are more like “no”..


  • gosh I love the purity and imagination of kids – truly precious


  • Children don’t take long to realise that some things are very heavy. Men tend to protect their ladies from handling very heavy items. Some of it may stem from that. Men are given the job of mowing the lawns, putting the garbage bins out etc. Lets face it, garbage bins can be very heavy and awkward to move when they have a lot in them – they don’t need to be full either. The grass catchers of lawn mowers aren’t light either. Having a big yard, I often used to have to take a break once or sometimes twice when cutting the lawns. It is tiring for your back.


  • Of course a woman Santa could do the job if you notice all the important things in a young child’s life is a man except the tooth fairy all the rest are men equal rights l say, Women can do anything a man can do sometimes probably better


  • gotta love the logic and innocence of darling kids x


  • It is always intriguing and entertaining listening to the answers kids give lol!


  • Lol this is so cute!


  • This shocks me. Clearly some work to be done with the younger generation with respect to gender roles and equality.


  • it is amazing that more didn’t say yes! it must just be weird to think of a female in santa’s role.


  • Bit concerned with some of the answers. Strength I can understand but I just love that boy that was defending girls not really being different from boys.


  • I am quite surprised by the answer I really thought a lot of children would say yes I am shocked and stunned.


  • Just shows how our male bosses get the idea that women are second class citizens, doesn’t it? It’s instilled in them at home.


  • I would have expected a lot of kids to say “yes”. I’m quite surprised by the answers.


  • I wonder where these kids get their ideas…
