Handbook “Gender Through the Screen” is standing to teach and provide knowledge and recommendation to youth workers for fair and equal portraying the genders and share tips and tricks about ethical media conduct in youth work related to gender equality.

Our main aim is to deeper explore the gender portrayal in order to address the most  problematic issues and raise awareness of the public on the importance of gender roles as seen and portrayed in the mass media and the influence it has in our daily lives. We want to reach to young people, youth workers and everyone who is interested in the topic and hope to see some changes in our societies, in the way we perceive genders and our roles.

At the end, we are sharing with you what have we done so far on our project “Gender Through The Screen” through the four activities that were held in 4 different countries, but all with the same purposes: to create a baseline how youth work can advocate and support the better portrayal of gender in the media; engage more young people and youth workers to bring up gender issues through social media channels and commit to fairly and ethically address the issues through their PR strategies in their associations; deeper explore the gender portrayal in order to address the most problematic issues while training youth workers, youth leaders and young people to act as advocates and reporters; and raise awareness on the importance of gender roles shown in the media and their impact on society and people`s behavior.Link to the Handbook
