WHY:

We all know we live in a sexist/chauvinist society, even though each country has its own situation.
Every women live during their whole life countless situations where they are treated a different way
than men. There are some problems that have been solved, however, there are others that
remain nowadays. We believe that the first step in order to fix this is
to visualize them and this will raise awareness on the youngsters. The youth is the future of society
and it’s crucial that they become feminist from a young age, so that our society gets more equal
little by little.

HOW:

During the youth exchange, we are going to discuss the topic: “Feminism”. For this, we will discuss about
different points thanks to the activities we have prepared. The first days, we will talk about the different definitions and the situation of equality that exists in each country. Also, we are going to work in the issue of gender violence and the education that each person has on this point. To complete the youth exchange, we will create a project to make other people know more about this topic.
