Programme:

What is the project about?

The MaRvel: (Re)veiled Masculinities project aims to challenge gender stereotypes associated with hegemonic masculinities. It aims to create and implement a structured intervention programme, which will be built on the basis of a previously constructed documentary on the theme. The programme will be implemented with 25 boys, aged between 13 and 18, sheltered in the Educational Centres of Santo António (Oporto) and Santa Clara (Vila do Conde) and in the Professional Institute of Terço (Oporto).

 

It is an Open Call #2 project: Projects to combat sex segregation in educational and professional choices and discrimination in the labour market
