Towards a Gender Equitable Society
- Progress Ongoing
- Project Duration January 1, 2021
Towards a Gender Equitable Society’ is a project in partnership with Search for Common Ground funded by UK Aid, aiming at working with young social media actors to build their capacity and integrate notions of: positive masculinity, gender equity & sexual harassment into their work.
The young film makers, script writers, videographers, and editors, participated in an intensive training program facilitated by ABAAD in partnership with Search for common Ground.
consequently, the project supported the production of 18 short films developed from a gender-positive lens. Those movies challenge stereotypes, and shed light on issues such as gender equality, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), including intimate partner violence and child marriage. As we believe in the important role of culture to change a society’s perception of social issues, the films were widely broadcasted on social media, and during a short film festival which took place in a public venue in June 2022.
