Audio-visual lecture in Prešov

On the 8th of November 2022, an audio-visual lecture took place in Prešov.

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 audiovisual lecture, attention was also brought to the gender difference in the perception of old age in our society. Why is a gray-haired middle-aged man considered attractive and charming, but if a woman does not dye her gray hair, they say that she does not take care of herself?

People are still convinced that physical attractiveness is the most important thing about women and that everyone should strive to come closer to the ideal idea of ​​beauty. Mature women are hardly seen in the media because youth is important for the cult of beauty. But no one will be young forever.
