Summary

Gender-based violence and discrimination against women and girls is widespread in India and exacerbated due to the effects of the COVID-19. In order to move towards greater gender equality, it's not enough just to work with women. Male attitudes also need to change so that men start to understand how greater gender equality might benefit them too. At the same time, it is necessary to help women and girls to build their skills and confidence so they can challenge discrimination and violence.

Challenge

Gender-based violence and discrimination against women and girls is widespread in India and has been exasperated by the effects of the COVID-19. In order to move towards greater gender equality it's not enough just to work with women. Male attitudes also need to change so that men start to understand how greater gender equality might benefit them too. At the same time, it is necessary to help women and girls to build their skills and confidence so they can challenge discrimination and violence.

Solution

1. By providing quality training for sensitisation of teachers, adolescent boys, and fathers so that all understand the normalised discrimination and violence against girls and women. 2. By strengthening the adolescent girls via self-defence and confidence building, and awareness training for mothers, so that they become confident to fight for their rights and wellbeing also. 3. By creating an explicit culture of 'violence-free schools' where all students feel safe and equally supported

Long-Term Impact

This project works equally with boys and their fathers, as well as girls and their mothers to challenge traditional gender attitudes. There is a particular focus on school age children, whose attitudes will do most to shape future gender norms.
