RECENT NEWS AND ACTIVITIES
Local actions implemented in the Municipality of Gostivar encouraged and strengthened women of this region
Датум: 2/9/2011
 
The first local action “Violence, weapon of the weak!” conducted in the rural areas in the Municipality of Gostivar was intended to increase the level of sensibility, understanding and recognition of domestic violence among women from rural areas and to establish the basic indicators for the occurrence of domestic violence and to strengthen the confidence among women and encourage them to take steps for registration and protection from violence.
In order to achieve this goal in frames of this action were realized two educational workshops and a public forum in which 50 people participated actively. To raise the public awareness of women in the municipality and the public, within the local action, initiated and implemented by the target group in collaboration with local teams, Antico prepared a video that was shown by the regional TV Kiss during 10 days, three times daily.

The second local action in this municipality was realized under the title “Stressful life of young girls” and treated the problem with the appearance of stress at young girls, which largely depends on the gender roles imposed by the family and the society. For educating the young girls how to cope with the stress arising from unequal gender roles, were organized 2 workshops attended by 42 participants. Educators at the workshops were two experts in the field of psychology. The stereotypes about gender roles are often a source for the emergence of stress at young girls.

As results from the education were raised questions about that gender roles and relationships and stereotypical patriarchal upbringing and values of which the children are exposed from birth, determines that boys are often dominant, aggressive and they hide their emotions. This kind of stereotyped upbringing affects boys to have more power in relation to girls.
Girls from early childhood are learnt to obey, to be devoted to the home and family, passive, etc. This is a typical example of existence of a high level of patriarchal values in these environments that condition and support the gender inequality, which except that it discriminates girls and women, it reflects very negatively on their psycho-physical health. One of the frequent consequences of this condition is the occurrence of stress among young girls.

Through the public debate with the young people and their teachers, it was increased the awareness of the occurrence of stress. They were familiar with the causes and consequences of the stress, as well as the methods of prevention and protection. The focus was put on raising public awareness of the root of the problem observed from gender dimension.
