United for Equality
Domestic and Gender-based Equality
The project aims to eliminate negative stereotypes about women and men in public and private life.
Many young people in Slovakia lack knowledge about gender equality. At the same time, they are constantly exposed to ongoing stereotypes about women and men, whether in everyday situations in public and private spaces or through the media which have become a significant part of their lives.
Project United for Equality has the ambition to bring positive change in perception of gender equality and to support rejection of gender stereotypes. The main activities of the project are an awareness raising campaign and audio-visual lectures for high school and university students.
These activities will support critical thinking, expand knowledge about gender equality, provide important information, and bring a challenging topic closer to young people.
The project activities will encourage students to critically reflect on the portrayal of men and women in the media, cinematography, and advertisement; and how these influence their everyday lives.
