Ending gender inequality, through engaging educating empowering young adults and young professionals and ultimately preventing Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) is at the heart of what we do at Made Equal. We stand against the gender inequalities which create unequal power relations and social norms between men and women at all levels of societies. Such gender inequalities are often justified through cultural norms and values, and are pervasive throughout all sectors and societies. Gender-based inequality poses a barrier to social,economic and structural development and equality objectives in society, and is inextricably linked to VAWG.
We firmly believe that everyone, regardless of gender, can be powerful advocates in ending gender inequality, in speaking out, and in taking action against VAWG. Made Equal promotes the ending of gender inequality by adopting and formulating programmes that are geared towards prevention, education and campaigning, and achieving gender equality whilst combating VAWG.
WHO WE ARE:
In 2013, Without Women, where would we be… was set up by a group of individuals committed to ending gender inequality led by Deborah Owhin. It was established as a response to the agreed conclusions and experiences at the United Nations 57th Commission on the Status of Women. In February 2014, Without Women evolved to the organisation that it is today: Made Equal. Made Equal shares the same heart, the same values, and the same vision, but is better placed to be the generation to end gender inequality.
We are eager to highlight the challenges that gender inequality creates for women, young women and girls across the globe to be enabled to be the best they can be! We love educating, training, encouraging, campaigning, inspiring, empowering and sharing with others. Our hope is to raise a new generation of change agents who will prevent and stand for Gender Justice. At Made Equal believe that gender inequalities can not only be reduced but eradicated within our current generation.
We pride ourselves on being a volunteer led organisation with no paid full time staff. We believe a few passionate people dedicated to doing good can make a massive difference. We aim to give young adults and young professionals a platform to be engaged in the journey of ending gender inequality by: speaking out, participating in trainings, conducting and producing research, running intergenerational programmes, influencing policies, and individually promoting change.
Made Equal works to be part of the solutions to end gender inequality by taking actions before it even takes place through active our trainings, programmes and events which focus on ensuring primarily young adults and young professionals in their 20s and 30s are engaged and at the forefront of challenging the systematic changes in combating Gender Inequality.
We firmly believe that ending Gender Inequality is not a women’s issue or a men’s issue it is a Human issue, and we believe everyone has a role to play so we invite you to get involved in the movement…
