"Playing for Gender Equality" Manual
The Playing for Gender Equality manual was developed in order to teach young children and adolescent boys and girls about the concepts of gender-equality.
It is indeed at this point of their lives that they begin formulating their ideals of gender and inter/intra gender relations.
By learning the terms and concepts associated with gender equality, children can start the important process of questioning the inequalities that they can see around them. They can be engaged in discussions that will give them a different perception of gender relations then those that they have witnessed in their home, culture and local media. They can start on a path to becoming adults who are sensitive to issues of gender inequalities, and advocates for laws and policies to correct those human rights violations in their country.
The work with children and adolescents should begin today, should we hope for a gender equal tomorrow.
What does the manual include?
The PFGE manual is a tool for trainers and facilitators to begin working on gender-equality related concepts throught fun, interactive, competitive and educational games and exercices for children aged 8 to 12. Through these games, important ground work for understanding the concepts and issues surrounding gender-equality are introduced to the children, including important terms and definitions. Through this ground work, the trainer may open up discussions pertaining to those terms asnd concepts, or simply prepare the children to have an excellent knowledge-based for the future discussions they will have on these topics.
