After a long discussion, project partners have come to conclusion that young people in Europe are still facing gender inequality and they are exposed to gender-based violence. Thus, there is a need to introduce concepts and activities to build young people awareness and provide them with tools which can be used to mobilise young people around to work for gender equality.
Project sets gender in the context of practice and policy by providing challenges to gender based work with young people, as well as providing recommendations for policy developments in helping young people to understand and challenge the impact that gender has upon their lives.
In fairy tales there are traditional gender-specific roles and behaviours which will be the start point to challenge feelings of young people about existence of gender stereotypes.This approach will encourage them to broaden their personal expectations beyond the restrictions of gendered stereotypes and will contribute to the ongoing development of local and EU community.
Gender roles are determined by the system and cultures. With concept of reconstruction of fairy tales, we want to make a progress toward narrowing the gaps between men and women.
