Sexual and psychical violence are common among boys and girls. At EU level, the FRA carried out an EU-wide survey on violence against women (2014). One of the main conclusions is that 33% of women had suffered physical and/or sexual violence since the age of 15. Moreover, new stereotypes and forms of discrimination and violence have arisen recently from the growing use of the online networks, pointing out that sexist attitudes among the younger generation about gender roles are persistent. Therefore, there is a need to increase the work on gender-based violence (GBV) prevention among girls and boys in order to combat and eradicate this phenomenon.
Play it for Change aims at educating and raising awareness for the prevention of GBV among girls and boys by encouraging their critical thinking and fostering their empowerment through audio-visual media.
