2pm CET

Stereotypes are present in all spheres of modern life. Often we are so used to them, that we do not even consider them as stereotypes, including statements  that only girls wear pink for example, or that men don`t cry, and those who do are not "real" man. We are exposed to stereotypes since early age throughout our life, and they are pasted from one generation to another.

During this webinar we are going to present some of the tools developed by Terre des hommes Moldova within the project ”For a violence free life of children in Moldova” funded by OAK Foundation, with the aim of diminishing gender based stereotypes starting with children of age 7 to 18 years old.

All developed tools were based on the most common gender stereotypes found by the base line survey of the project. The stereotypes which we have emphasized during the work with children are related to the distribution of roles in the family, managing emotions, violence against children, free time activities. The results we gained at the end of the project, allow us to assert that the materials we have elaborated are can be used as an effective tool to combat this kind of stereotypes and prejudice.

Here you can learn about children`s opinions about gender stereotypes in Moldova, which we interviewed as part of the project.

This webinar could be of interest to child protection specialists, especially project implementers, teachers, and animators.
