Adopting a Women's Shelter: How Boys Can Foster Sensitivity and Empathy towards Women — Cecilia Erasmus, St. Stithians Boys' College, South Africa

  • Global Citizenship (2015-16)

How does adopting a shelter for abused women and their children foster empathy in high school boys towards women?

This project focused on the rights of women and the aim was to see if it is possible to create empathy and foster sensitivity towards women through an intensive program of critical conversations on the topic of gender inequality and by taking action against violence against women by adopting a women’s shelter.
