Given the differences in status, considerations and positions observed between men and women in today’s society, our project aims to promote gender equality among the entire educational community to achieve greater social justice In the Europe of tomorrow.
In fact, in our schools, students already have strong prejudices about what girls and boys should be. As a result, men then obtain positions of responsibility; Many women are content with precarious and poorly paid jobs. This infernal cycle is reproduced from generation to generation and is even more present in isolated and disadvantaged populations, as is the case of a large part of the students of the participating schools.
This observation forces us to reflect on gender stereotypes to better combat them. In fact, there can be no real equality between men and women without deconstructing the foundations of gender relations, that is, the historical division of social roles between men and women. These roles are based on philosophical, religious, political, biological or social “justifications” that vary in history and country.
By giving girls and women their rightful place, we are helping to change attitudes and, therefore, promoting gender change to build fairer and more equal societies.
