Visualising and drawing 'gender equality'

Purpose

This exercise provides a very useful starting point for personal and group reflection on multiple, sometimes contradictory ideas about what gender and gender equality mean.

Method

Ask the workshop participants to draw a picture of what gender equality looks like to them, whether literal or metaphorical. Then ask them to find others in their group who have drawn similar pictures and discuss together their ideas about gender equality. Ask each group to share some key points from their discussion and open out the conversation to all participants.
