I’m a Girl

In Albania, we do not educate boys to be men, we educate them with the idea that girls and women are “less than …” which leads to violence by some and silence by the majority. We teach them that if they address a girl with the term “burrneshë” (masculine woman) are showing appreciation, thus completely ignoring the violation and underestimation that the story of this term carries for the female figure in our country.

H.A.N.A’ call during this campaign is addressed specifically to boys and man. It is important for them not only to stand up against violence toward woman and girls, but also to teach the younger generation that part of manhood is also being respectful, mature, empathic and non-violent.
