Tales and historical characters are part of each society cultural heritage, disseminated through the generations via oral, pictorial, and written tradition. They play a great role in conveying folklore elements, root values and norms including gender norms. For children, tales constitute an entire part of their socialization process stimulating their imagination, creativity and enabling their identification with characters. While tales allow them to temporarily escape from reality, they have a strong educational power helping girls and boys to grow and develop their personality.
Marking the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action adoption and in line with Generation Equality Forum, expected in 2021 as an intergenerational and intersectional gathering of women’s activists to create a renewed momentum and accelerate progress towards women’s rights and leaving no-one behind, UN Women ECA RO pursues the efforts to vehicle positive change and promote gender equality by devoting a modern fairy tales’ collection targeting at young readers and citizens of tomorrow.
The world is dramatically changing by new technologies, industrial revolutions, and technological progress. It is even ironic that as the COVID-19 pandemic forces people’s physical disconnection, it is also showing how people are all connected by histories, literature and social interactions which are grounded on common values of humanity. Despite all crisis related consequences which the COVID-19 brings, there are also many positive and inspiring changes happening as a result of the pandemic. It highlights a need for reflection and actions to bring gender equality and human rights perspectives into approaches and practices for bringing up a new generation which is expected to live free of discrimination and violence in equal world from 2030.
UN Women ECA RO initiates a feminist stories and fairy telling campaign with an aim to support a dialogue to change the ways society thinks about women’s and girls’ roles, human potential, and rights. The initiative is expected to expose the role of fairy tales in the cultural struggle over gender equality and feminism. For this purpose, the "forgotten" narratives which highlight shifting attitudes towards the role of women and girls will be applied. We strongly believe that such stories will tell a young generation a great deal about changing attitudes to women, gender equality and feminism. The stories that children grow up with are vitally important in shaping who they are as adults.
UN Women ECA RO’s initiative has brought together feminist writers in our first workshop to re-work familiar fairytales as well as to bring forgotten women’s characters and stories to overcome an oppressive treatment and historical silencing of women by the patriarchy.
Key milestones and timeline for the initiative implementation are as follows;
ECA RO is looking for experienced International Consultant Illustrators to support illustrating our modern fairy tales’ collection.
