Gender and media are of concern for everyone, not only European wide but dare we say worldwide. Both topics encompass fundamental rights that we as youth workers shall embrace and promote further. This project idea came out in one of our recently implemented activities under Erasmus+. The youth workers and youngsters attending the training course crystalised the main idea represented in this application as an important aspect when we discuss the gender roles in our society and attach media influence to it. Media was introduced ad key concept that leads the society today and can be guarded as both with its strong power of change, as much as with the enforcement of negative and false gender stereotypes in various cases (ie. Considering here that mostly women are portrayed as caregivers, housewife’s, and also more likely are shown as a sexualized attire, while man are shown through media as the stronger dominant sex, they dominate the film industry both as main leading roles as well as in acting, directing etc).
