Audio-visual lecture in Poprad

On the 10th of November 2022, an audio-visual lecture took place in Poprad.

The format of audio-visual lectures proved to be an effective way of non-formal education for students since the dynamics of the lecture corresponds to the current rapid trend in young people’s lives. The dynamics of audio-visual lectures reflect the fact that Generation Z lives in the world of constant updates. As a result, the members of this generation are less focused but also they are fantastic multitaskers. Audio-visual lectures make use of the ability to receive a great deal of information and incentives at the same time.

The lecturers explained negative stereotypes about women and men in public and private life. They highlighted the representation of women in the decision-making process, at all social levels and supported equal opportunities for women in access and control of economic resources, equal remuneration, and sharing of domestic duties. They used short previews from selected and up-to-date movies, TV shows, and ads in order to address the above-mentioned issues.

As part of the audio-visual lecture, the lecturer presented that research shows that between the ages of 8 and 14, girls’ sports self-confidence drops by almost a third. More than half of girls stop playing sports before the age of 17. Among the reasons reported by girls are that sweating is “unfeminine” or the fear that they will have too muscular a figure. Moreover, in young men, competitiveness is encouraged much more than in young women.

Gender stereotypes often discourage girls and women from playing sports.
