Project description

Objectives:

Gender inequality is a structural problem. We can do an exercise in self- knowledge both individually and as a group to share our opinions and experiences, which will lead to dialogue, reafirmation of opinions, debate and possible change of views.

  1. Increase the awareness of young people and make them reflect on the roles and status of women and men.
  2. Analyze and discuss the cases of gender inequality existing in different cultures within Europe,
  3. Develop communication skills, cooperatives and teamwork.

The place of women in society is seen in different ways from each country and culture, but, there is something in common: It’s a sensitive topic for a lot of countries. Significant differences persist in the roles and status of women and men, influenced by patriarchal culture and traditions. These differences have created deep-rooted social expectations regarding women and men.

The aim of this project is to analyze and discuss the existed gender inequalities and gender roles through the culture and history, to make youngsters understand why this unequal situation is not as acceptable as they might think. This work will be especially fruitful by the confrontation with other cultures from Europe, which will help to reflect and put things into perspectives from their own societal expectations, see the strengths and weaknesses of their cultures on gender roles and gender equality, discuss and learn from each other’s history and cultural realities, in order to break stereotypes in an intercultural perspective.

That is why, thanks to this youth exchange we would like:
• To increase the awareness of young people and make them reflect on the roles and status of women and men
• To introduce the basic aspects of the feminist movement: history, background, lines of thought
• To make young people aware of the situation of gender balance in other countries
• To make the new generation have an open mind and create possible future civic activists
