Gender Equality is not a game!

The analysis of the first data collected in Cyprus, Portugal, Slovenia and Italy within the sociological research on gender stereotypes, coordinated by the University of Valencia, and the ethnographic study on gaming habits of young people, led by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, were the topics of discussion during the 2nd transnational meeting of Free to Choose. The meeting took place at the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Valencia on the 19th and 20th of October 2017.

Led by Itaca Social Cooperative and co-funded by the EU, Free to Choose targets 16-29 years old girls and boys and aims at overcoming gender stereotypes in education, training and workplace. Among the objectives of the project, that also involves Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and IRES FVG as a partner, there is the development and testing of a game as educational and professional guidance tool which will help in decodifying gender stereotypes in each partner country.
