We held the first meeting of our project 2020-1-NO01-KA201-076451, NO MAN NO WOMAN / JUST HUMAN, with the participation of our partners from Norway, Sweden, Spain, Turkey and Greece. Project activities and intellectual outputs were discussed in detail in our meeting. Partners presented their organizations. The following steps of the project have been decided.
The second meeting of our project was held online due to the pandemic situation. We have drawn a detailed planning and road map for the needs analysis and literature studies, which is the first intellectual output of our project. As a result of the national needs mapping, our other intellectual outputs will be created. Literature reviews at national level will be analyzed comparatively. In addition, Needs Analysis Scale for primary, secondary and high school students will be developed in accordance with all age groups. The same scale will be developed within the needs of teachers and applied to 1000 people in total and the needs will be determined. Within the scope of our first intellectual output, "Interactive Gender Equality Dictionary" studies, which include stereotypes, have also started. The dictionary aims to develop a universal and human-based language.
The United Nations General Assembly declared 11th of February as International Day of Women and Girls in Science to ensure full and equal access and participation in science for women and girls, and to ensure gender equality and empowerment of women and girls.
Science and gender equality are vital to achieving internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort to inspire and involve women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from fully participating in science.
Today, only 30 percent of researchers worldwide are women. According to UNESCO data, only about 30 percent of all female students choose STEM-related fields in higher education. Globally, enrollment of female students in ICT (3 percent), natural sciences, mathematics and statistics (5 percent) and engineering, manufacturing and construction (8 percent) is particularly low. Ongoing prejudices and gender stereotypes drive girls and women away from science-related fields. With this awareness, we renewed our call for awareness, especially by taking our project meeting to this day. One of our main goals was to distance our teachers and students from prejudices and gender stereotypes in the educational materials to be produced.
We held the meeting of our “No Man No Woman / Just Human” K201 project on gender equality and equal opportunity in education on the 8th of March, International Women's Day. We continue to produce and raise awareness in order to create a milestone on this long and challenging road to achieve full equality and to benefit our girls and boys from equal opportunities, and to get one step closer to the goal. Our motto is clear: #justhuman.
