When? 6th of March 2015, 19h30 – 21h30
IMPRESSIONS OF THE EVENT:
Highlights of the event are the following:
- Presentation on gender equality and women’s rights. Main focus of the presentation was the difference between ‘sex’ and ‘gender’ and a gender-based approach to daily working Tasks
- Screening of the film L’égalité des sexes au Bénin : « Sens inverse » by the Decentralization Programme in Benin (PDDC/GIZ). Watching the film with supplementary commentary by the gender specialist of ProSEHA allowed the participants to develop a good understanding of the socio-cultural problems which are negatively affecting gender equality in Benin.
After the discussion the partners committed themselves to taking a gender-based approach to their projects and programmes for water, hygiene, and sanitation.
