Gender in Conflict

Gender in Conflict

This immersive 360 documentary looks at how gender affects people in conflict. After over eight years of war in Syria, more than 350 000 refugees are still living in makeshift shelter camps in West Bekaa, a fertile but harsh valley bordering Syria. Narrated by both Syrian women and men, we hear their impressions of how their gender has played a role in their experience as refugees and witness their environments in which they experience both equality and inequality. Empowering women requires addressing structural issues such as unfair social norms and attitudes, as well as developing progressive legal frameworks that promote equality between women and men. This documentary was made in collaboration with Amel Association International, an NGO in Lebanon working to address these social norms and attitudes through different gender focused programmes. Moreover, Amel counts a substantial number of female volunteers and thus 80% of Amel’s team are women!
