Full rights for girls in the Nordic countries
The organisations behind this project are troubled by the increasingly harsh climate in society where alarming reports about the vulnerability of girls in the school environment and elsewhere in the public space are becoming progressively commonplace. Regardless of in which country sexual harassment occurs, it implies consequences for young women’s health, participation in the democratic process and overall room to manoeuvre in life.
This project has created a knowledge base and to strengthen the public opinion in the Nordic countries with respect to girls’ rights, gender equality, equal treatment and sustainable health. The aim is to strengthen the public opinion and to shed light on injustices from a Nordic perspective, make room for the situation of girls in the political agenda and demand responsible policy work. The project has also provided training for key persons involved in the implementation of these policies, as well as persons working within organisations that deal with young women’s issues.
