Overall objective

To contribute to a more gender sensitive environment where women and men are able to openly and critically discuss gender roles in society amidst conflict.

Achieved results

  • Community screenings of the documentary “Uprooted” – followed by debates – are managing to create dilaogue on the changing gender roles in the north of Nigeria.
  • Participants (male and female) acknowledge that debates also inspired (dialogue on the) change of gender norms within their own households.
  • Senior and junior journalists who attended the debates were able to produce more in-depth human interest stories on the conflict in the north of Nigeria through a gender sensitive lens.
