In the context of the project "Des stéréotypes à l’égalité de genre" funded by the European Union and with the participation of four schools from Finland, France, Greece and Romania, and three NGOs from France, Italy and Spain, a book of traditional tales told from a new perspective was created. The book has the aim to fight against gender inequality from an educational and social perspective. It is a collection of classic tales with a different plot, in which the main characters - regardless of their gender - live adventures, change their own situation and take on relevant roles in the story’s development. Different tales were selected for the book project: Wooden Chestnut, Alexandra Active, Nestor and the Beast, and Rockerella. These stories have been written and adapted by the children of the schools involved in the project and the book is illustrated with their own drawings.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
