La violence sexiste

Introduction

Welcome to the module text… all of this text will change. So you know a lot about gender based violence, this module is here to be a primer or introduction to GBV, from a feminist lens to add to what you know. It is not a comprehensive resource, but a way to understand key concepts and themes to help you in your advocacy strategies and actions.

The module has 5 main sections to help you on your learning journey. First, we asked a senior feminist and young feminist to help us set the frame on what is GBV and how are young femnists today shaping this movement. You will be invited to watch their video before heading to section 2 – key concepts and theories.

Key Concepts and theories will be the section that introduces the big ideas that define GBV, and also critical perspectives and questions raised by black, indigenous, queer, trans and adolecent girls on the topic. 

Section 3 is all about advocacy. How, where, and who (this includes you!) is advocating and challenging GBV around the world. You can find out how to get involved in your community, nationally, and globally. This section will cover many of the important UN spaces, as well as movement spaces led by civil society and activists.

Section 4 is where things get practical. You will have access to real life examples of gender advocacy in action – from Marches against Rape and Sexual Assult to defining moments and speeches in historic conferences.

Section 5 will be a quiz! The quiz is to help summarize what you have learned and also to help us hear some feedback on how you thought this module was. By completing the quiz, you will receive a certificate of completion, if you so desire.

Special Box (only for GBV section) : Trigger Warning

Trigger warning: Please note that this module is about gender based violence. 

A trigger is a word or an event that can cause an action to take place. Throughout this module, certain words, events, or scenarios might be triggering. This means that listening, reading, or watching some of the content might cause an individual to feel uncomfortable or anxious, or even take them back to an unpleasant memory. 
If you experience any of these feelings at any point during the module, you can do a grounding exercise. Close your eyes. Breathe in and out. Focus on your breathing. Tell yourself that you are safe, and you are okay. Use your breathing as an anchor to help bring you to the present moment. 

If you feel like you need to – use the 5-4-3-2-1 tool to regain control. The hack relies on our five senses – sight, smell, taste, and touch, to bring us back to the present. 
In the first step – look around and identify 5 things that you can see at the moment 
In the next step – identify 4 things which you can hear
3 things which you can feel (it could be from touching the ground, to feeling the clothes on your skin) 
2 things you can smell 
1 thing you can taste 
Do this as many times as you want to, or at regular intervals. You don’t need to go through any of these modules by yourself. Sit with someone you trust, and ask them to go through it with you.

Key concepts

Concept 1 – Gender equality is the state in which access to rights or opportunities is not inhibited based on gender. Achieving gender equality required paying attention to the ways in which gender impacts people’s lives, while also taking into account multiple intersections of individual identities. This concept is known as intersectionality. 

Gender equality does not mean that gender is prioritised over other identity categories, it simply means that gender is taken into account or mainstreamed, in our movement for gender equality. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. 

 

Special Box on Intersectionality

In the Feminist Action Lab we will be taking an intersectional approach to gender. What is intersectionality? Blah blah blah blah definition and example – 
gender is taken into account in conjunction with other factors such as race, class, and sexuality. This means that when we say girls or women, for example, that we do not assume that this identity is white, heterosexual, or cisgender, for example. Girls and women, in this case – refers to cisgender and transgender identified girls and women. Non-binary, gender-queer, intersex, and gender-fluid individuals have gender identities that don’t fit neatly into binary categories of male and female. Their gender may include elements of both female or male, or they may not identify with either binary. It is important to remember that all these individuals, need to be included when talking about gender equality, and advancing the notion of gender equality. 
Throughout this module, you will observe the significant strides and movements that have been made under gender equality, and the ripple effects of these movements and actions. However, though much work is being done, the world we live in is not still gender equal. There are many barriers, restrictions, attitudes, and laws that prevent us from achieving gender equality. 

Some of the persistent barriers to gender equality include: 

  • Patriarchy 
  • Poverty 
  • Sexism 
  • Racism 
  • Classism 
  • Homophobia
  • Transphobia
  • Ableism
  • Ageism 
  • Access to education
