When? 04th of March 2015, 17:30

GIZ staff in Tunisia was invited to watch the movie “Crazy Stupid Love” (a choice out of three movies, made by the public themselves). During the film participants were asked to raise their hands every time they spotted a movie scene where female or male stereotypes are promoted. Following the movie, the audience was invited to participate in a 45 minutes discussion about gender stereotypes in movies and their impact on our daily life. The arguments brought forward during this debate showed that there is a lot of sensibility amongst GIZ staff when it comes to gender issues, but also that opinions on certain aspects of gender equality vary. In any case, the responsive audience agreed that gender stays an important topic to be tackled on a regular basis.
