Working with Falam Chin and Karen communities for gender equalityLeave a Comment
As part of the Matter of Respect project, Falam Chin and Karen community leaders in Melbourne’s east have led the development of a series of postcards and posters with messages around gender equality. They include:
- Strong boys cry posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
- Girls can be as loud as boys posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
- Dads can clean the house posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
- Women can lead posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
- Girls can be any size posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
- Girls can play with cars posters (Falam Chin / Karen)
National and international evidence demonstrates that gender inequality and rigid stereotypes are a predictor of violence against women.
Matter of Respect is a community-led project working with the Karen and Falam Chin communities in Melbourne’s east to challenge gender stereotypes and increase understanding of how to prevent family violence.
