Morning all, Ricky here with your Monday headlines.

0:00:110:00:14

First up, the Netherlands are European champions

0:00:140:00:16

after winning the Women's Euros.

0:00:160:00:19

Hosts the Netherlands won the competition with a thrilling 4-2

0:00:190:00:22

victory over Denmark.

0:00:220:00:25

The tournement is being called the most successful

0:00:250:00:27

Women's Euros ever.

0:00:270:00:32

Let's get you a round-up of the action at the World Athletics

0:00:320:00:34

Championships in London.

0:00:340:00:35

Let's start with the boos - American sprinter Justin Gatlin,

0:00:350:00:40

who shocked a lot of people when he beat Usain Bolt in the 100m

0:00:400:00:44

men's final, was booed again after picking up gold.

0:00:440:00:46

Bolt finished third and got bronze.

0:00:460:00:47

Gatlin's been in trouble before for taking banned drugs.

0:00:470:00:51

Better news for Jessica Ennis Hill - the retired athlete didn't have

0:00:510:00:54

to work up a sweat to pick up this gold.

0:00:540:00:57

She got the top prize after Russian drug cheat Tatyana Chernova

0:00:570:01:01

was stripped of her 2011 World Athletics Champion

0:01:010:01:03

heptathlon medal.

0:01:030:01:06

So an upgrade from silver to gold for Jess.

0:01:060:01:10

Do you think men should always be the ones to put out the bins

0:01:100:01:13

while women always do the dishes?

0:01:130:01:15

Well, the people who make adverts have been told to be more careful

0:01:150:01:18

about how they show the roles of boys and girls.

0:01:180:01:20

Ayshah's got more.

0:01:200:01:25

Her hair is so long and silky!

0:01:250:01:27

Have a look at these adverts...

0:01:270:01:28

Grown-up like mummy, and strong like daddy.

0:01:280:01:30

That's nothing compared to Captain Awesome's day.

0:01:300:01:34

Did you notice something about them?

0:01:340:01:35

I thought they were just random.

0:01:350:01:36

I don't really watch this type of thing.

0:01:360:01:38

Oh, no, doll advert.

0:01:380:01:42

Well, if you watch closely, there's an issue that some people

0:01:420:01:45

think is a bit of a problem.

0:01:450:01:48

That's with the way they seem to show how girls should be

0:01:480:01:51

and how boys should be.

0:01:510:01:52

This is known as gender stereotyping.

0:01:520:01:56

Ads that paint a picture that it's, for example, the woman's role

0:01:560:01:59

to tidy up after her family, who've trashed the house.

0:01:590:02:02

That's her job in life.

0:02:020:02:06

Similarly, ads that mock men for being hopeless at performing

0:02:060:02:09

straightforward parental or household tasks, just

0:02:090:02:11

because they're a man.

0:02:110:02:14

Now that the kids know what to look for, has it changed

0:02:140:02:17

what they think of the ads?

0:02:170:02:19

The way they are putting it is just, like, girls are weak and pretty

0:02:190:02:22

but boys are strong, and that's not always

0:02:220:02:25

the way it works.

0:02:250:02:28

I actually know quite a few boys who quite like dolls,

0:02:280:02:33

but I know about ten girls who hates dolls.

0:02:330:02:39

I hate dolls.

0:02:390:02:40

I've never, ever played with dolls.

0:02:400:02:43

I think you should get a boy and a few girls

0:02:430:02:45

and about two boys on it as well.

0:02:450:02:49

The Munch Bunch is all right because it has girls in and boys in.

0:02:490:02:58

If I was in charge of the adverts, I would try to make it more modern

0:02:580:03:01

and fair for boys and girls.

0:03:010:03:03

Just try and close the sexist gap and try and get an equal number

0:03:030:03:06

of boys and girls in it.

0:03:060:03:10

you about our latest Newsround special.

0:03:100:03:11

This one tells the story of 10-year-old Sumayyah,

0:03:110:03:16

11-year-old Shubhashukla and 9-year-old Kamolpriya.

0:03:160:03:18

They're all are on a mission of a lifetime to find out

0:03:180:03:21

what happened to their families during Indian partition

0:03:210:03:24

70 years ago.

0:03:240:03:28

They travel from the UK to India and Bangladesh to re-create

0:03:280:03:30

the journey that their families made so many years ago.

0:03:300:03:33

I want you to go to India and find out what you can

0:03:330:03:36

about our family history.

0:03:360:03:37

Yes.

0:03:370:03:40

I have some letters, you go to Bangladesh

0:03:400:03:42

and find my old home for yourself.

0:03:420:03:46

Once we find it we will tell you all about it.

0:03:460:03:50

Thank you, Daddy!

0:03:500:03:56

This is my great, great grandfather.

0:03:560:04:02

We're wondering if you could help us find an old house?

0:04:020:04:05

This was one of the posh houses in this area.

0:04:050:04:10

I've found a piece of the puzzle of my family's history and I'm

0:04:100:04:13

willing to find out the rest of this puzzle.

0:04:130:04:18

It's unlike anything I've ever seen in my life!

0:04:180:04:22

We believe that this is your ancestral home.

0:04:220:04:26

It's very hot.

0:04:260:04:28

This place is open 24 hours a day.

0:04:280:04:31

What?!

0:04:310:04:34

The thing that I'll probably remember about this whole trip

0:04:340:04:37

is my grandad's reaction.

0:04:370:04:39

It's amazing, it's amazing, it's amazing!

0:04:390:04:42

I just think she must have been such a strong woman

0:04:420:04:45

to go through all that.

0:04:450:04:51

And I'm really proud that I could uncover my

0:04:510:04:54

great-grandmother's story.

0:04:540:04:56

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half-an-hour.

0:04:560:05:00

BOTH: Hey, guys!

0:05:020:05:03

We just wanted to say we love

0:05:030:05:05
