Our handbook on gender-based violence prevention in youth work is now published!
This handbook aims to facilitate the empowerment of youth activists and youth workers who are gender diversity and LGBTIQ rights advocates to work with youth in tackling gender-based violence with inclusion, recognition, and diversity.
To build an understanding about gender-based violence, its consequences, and how it can be tackled, the handbook begins by exploring the concept of gender; the relationship between sex, sexual identities, and sexual orientations; and the role of systemic oppression and gender discrimination in the perpetuation of gender-based violence. To respond to the learning needs among youth workers, the handbook continues by exploring how to identify or assess a gender-based violence context and then discusses the role of a gender-sensitive and participatory training approach in tackling gender-based violence.
