Challenge

Ukraine is a patriarchal society with family violence, gender discrimination and sexual harassment at the work place, 30% gender pay gap, underrepresentation of women in politics (9.5% in Parliament), homophobia, etc. Official education and mass media promote only two main gender roles for women: a mother and housekeeper or a young beautiful Barbie. Young girls need more information about gender roles and opportunities for self-realization in future life.

Solution

Museum collection comprises about 3,000 exhibits from different part of Ukraine and other countries. There are documents, books, textbooks, toys, CDs, personal belongings of people dealing with gender issues, souvenirs, different tools of women's work, photos etc. The Museum provides education activity on gender issues using interactive methods and visualization of different gender problems. 150-200 persons visit the Museum each month and they get insight and new gender vision here.

Long-Term Impact

Even today the Museum attracts gender experts and volunteers who disseminate ideas of gender equality in the region. In future it will be an Incubator of Gender Projects and a Centre of Women Leadership and Innovative Education Centre in Ukraine which creates new approaches and ideas, react to the new situation and challenges and provides modern vision of gender relations to Ukrainian youth.
