Challenge

Stereotyped gender roles and consequent forms of coexistence between men and women promote and exalt sexist socialization of children. In the community of Carpio, these sexist imaginaries are strongly rooted. Gender inequity and gender-based violence are normalized, internalized and reproduced as behavior patterns in children's daily life weakening their self-perception, relationships, and potentialities, and hurting them both in the short and long term.

Solution

Using creative, playful arts-based methods BIENDEMUJER will guide 200 children of the community of Carpio to deconstruct sexist imaginary of men and women and access gender equality perspective to rebuild their self-perception and develop new ways of relating to their peers, family, and community free of sexist perceptions, gender inequity, and gender-based violence.

Long-Term Impact

200 adolescents and young adults from the community of Carpio: recognize themselves as subjects of rights with dignity, autonomy, and citizenship, regardless of their gender; have better criteria and knowledge to establish relationships and make decisions; advocate for their rights and equal opportunities in the places they operate; understand and embrace that they can pursue any career/occupation/interest regardless of their gender.
