Place aux filles!

“Place aux filles!” is a project with the aim of increasing the participation of women in decision-making by promoting a non-stereotyped socialization of girls and boys. During the project we will show and meet positive female role models and we will prepare girls, from adolescence, to be in position of power.

This project started with an undeniable fact: sexual and sexist stereotypes continue to exist and impose social norms for girls especially by pushing them less than their male colleagues in leadership or decision making roles. Based on this observation, Prevention CDN-NDG decided to set up a project that would allow teenagers to create an intervention in the community for and by them. This will be a great opportunity to familiarize themselves with the different steps needed to create a project.

This project is created as a safe space for girls – an inclusive space without any judgment – and will allow them to increase their self-confidence, empowerment, critical thinking and as well as an opportunity to create meaningful links with young people from their neighborhood.

The project in action is :

  • A group of girls between the ages of 12 and 17
  • A project created for and by the girls
  • Meeting with inspiring women
  • Recreational and instructional activities
  • New friendships

All this in a creative and safe atmosphere!
