"... learn more about

our actions"

Integration of educational programmes in the school environment to redefine gender representations in order to prevent inequalities. The promotion of human rights cannot be 'taught' in traditional terms and is not based on rote or passive learning. For this reason, the aim of our educational programmes is to open an 'experiential dialogue' in which we 'talk with the children'. In this direction, we apply methods of experiential-communicative teaching aimed at bringing out children's experiences and concerns. Through the creation of a safe space for interaction, different perspectives and attitudes around gender roles are reflected and children co-construct the concept of equality. Overall, the programmes aim to develop children's communication skills in order to seek help, as well as skills that will enable them to avoid/prevent unpleasant situations and to protect themselves.

Specific objectives:

  • ✓ Development of children's self-esteem and self-confidence
  • ✓ Developing future professionals with equal opportunities
  • ✓ Formation of child role models for the peer group
  • ✓ Cultivating freedom of expression in the private and public sphere
  • ✓ Developing empathy and respect for the 'other' and the 'different'
  • ✓ Prevention of bullying phenomena due to gender expression

The educational team visits schools all over Greece or conducts interventions through tele-education in areas whichfor practical reasons we cannot visit at that particular time.

Networking, awareness-raising and empowerment actions to combat sexism and gender discrimination...

Networking, awareness-raising and empowerment actions to combat sexism and gender discrimination. We create safe spaces so that groups of adults (parents/guardians, carers or non of the above) can come into contact with the internalised discrimination they may have as members of society. Emphasis is placed on experiential learning, whereby the key objective is to enable the appropriation of the knowledge and expertise provided.

Participants are expected to:

  • ✓ be able to understand why it is important to engage with the issue of gender equality
  • ✓ understand that gender-based violence is a phenomenon that transcends borders and time
  • ✓ understand the role of stereotypes in all aspects of life
  • ✓ create the will and curiosity to mobilise and actively engage in intervention

Awareness raising and training seminars for pre-school and primary education staff. Through the acquisition of tools and skills related to the promotion of gender equality, teachers act multiply in favour of substantive equality by integrating the gender dimension in pedagogical practices.

Through effectively designed and creative activities, teachers are invited to contribute to the process of constructing and/or deconstructing interpretations and schemas, with the aim of:

  • ✓ developing educational staff with specialized tools around gender equality issues
  • ✓ supporting and empowering teachers around conflict management based on gender expression
  • ✓ identifying sexist practices in schools
  • ✓ shaping Greek schools following models that promote an inclusive school environment
  • ✓ preventing phenomena of bullying in schools due to gender expression

All of the above will gradually lead to the empowerment of students so that they cultivate a culture of respect through a gender perspective, to be able to recognise acceptable or unacceptable behaviours and to ask for support when necessary.

Workshops, seminars and extended networking meetings on the aspect of femininities in art and culture. Phenomena of rape culture are observed across the spectrum of the arts and follow specific patterns of power relations. The context, the social outbreak and the #metoo movement in the art world confirms the need for creative interventions that contribute to a broader social awareness and empowerment. Genderhood's interdisciplinary team creates a framework for support and empowerment of femininities of all ages and professions in the cultural and audiovisual field.

Our targets are for every femininity to:

  • ✓ have access to equal professional opportunities
  • ✓ creatively examine the relationship between gender and society
  • ✓ find supportive environments for artistic creation
  • ✓ be empowered and feel competent in public speaking
  • ✓ feel safe to share her personal story

The ways we behave and express ourselves are shaped by the cultures in which we participate. Genderhood is committed to presenting an expanded field of cultures where every gender expression enjoys its space.
