Module 3: Equality in life and family

This module explains equality issues and concerns in life, with an emphasis on equality between men and women, boys and girls in the family.

The exercises in this module are designed to help create a deeper understanding about what it means to be a boy or a girl, a man or a woman. Children, youth and family members will explore their own understanding and attitudes about their own gender, roles and responsibilities and those of others in the family. They will analyze gender values, norms and attitudes on the status of women and men, and relations between them that prevail in their own families and their society. They will learn that all human beings have a right to develop themselves fully and find out how families can achieve this right for their members. They will also practice solving family conflicts.
