Power

Context

In all societies, power is unequally distributed among people: they have different influences on decisions, different rights and duties (Eriksen).

Gender is one of the dimensions that seems to organise this inequality in the distribution of power, with women tending to have lower rank and less power than men, at different times and in different places. Although in many European countries there has been a perception that these differences have been overcome, the explosion of the #MeToo movement has shown that even in Europe the issue is not completely resolved.

Aims

  • Offer young people creative and attractive ways to understand gender-related concepts

  • Raise awareness of how gender is linked to power: how people still experience discrimination and oppression because of their gender identity

  • Empowering young people to develop their gender identity in safe and creative ways, to deal with challenges and oppression related to their gender identity

  • Develop understanding, empathy and solidarity towards others with different types of gender identities and sexual orientations in order to take action against the oppression that others experience

  • Acquire tools to communicate gender inequalities and challenges.
    Provide youth workers and youth leaders with comprehensive tools to address gender and power issues with young people in a safe and engaging way
