Within the framework of the project SALAM "Preventing Violent Extremism in Tunisia", the Free Sight Association (FSA) organized a forum-Theatre titled "Yssir 3la Nsè" (It happens to women) in which young people from 12 to 17 years old, from Siliana (Tunisia), represented a theatre play based on different forms of Gender Based Violence (GBV).
The play opened a debate about alternatives to individual and social thoughts and behaviours that we have about the treatment and role given to women.
The aim of SALAM project is to strengthen the role of Tunisian women and youth in the development and implementation of strategies for the Prevention of all types of Violent Extremism (PEV), the improvement of social cohesion and community resilience.
