Challenge

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

Solution

Using creative, playful arts-based methods BIENDEMUJER will educate 200 children of the community of Carpio to identify, prevent and face gender-based violence deconstructing sexist imaginary of men and women and accessing gender equality perspectives to rebuild their self-perception and develop new ways of relating to their peers, family, and community free of gender-based violence, sexist perceptions, and gender inequity.

Long-Term Impact

200 kids 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 face situations involving gendered violence within their families, community and else; pursue relationships free of gender-based violence; advocate for their rights and equal opportunities wherever they are; understand and embrace that they can pursue any career/occupation/interest regardless of their gender.
