Gendered Realities: Project Updates

Keep up to date with all that's happening in our Gendered Realities...


Take part in our research on Gendered Realities in SCI activities

Help us find out how safe and inclusive SCI activities are when it comes to gender and sexuality.

  • Does gender or sexuality affect people’s experiences at SCI activities?
  • Are there situations or procedures that make people feel discriminated based on their gender?
  • Do people feel confident in recognising and addressing gender-based discrimination during SCI activities?

Give 15 minutes of your time to share your SCI experience in our assessment tool.

Your contribution will help us gather data and testimonies about the experiences of individuals participating in SCI activities. We will use the outcomes of this research to identify areas for future attention and to take practical measures to keep improving the quality of SCI activities.

Who can take part? Volunteers (participants or coordinators) to SCI workcamps or international trainings/seminars from the past five years.

When? From now on till September 2019


Love is love, street action in Vienna

What would you do, if you wanted to challenge the concept of heteronormativity in a creative matter? With this street action in Vienna, SCI activists stimulated people passing by to question their usual thinking structures on gender & love.



Gendered Realites' first local action takes place in Bulgaria

On 20/04/2019, CVS Bulgaria held a day activity which brought together women from two cities- Gabrovo and Veliko Tarnovo. The training informed the participants on how to organise local events in the format of 'SHE in..'- a successful social action strategy using multipliers for female empowerment.

SHE in Veliko Tarnovo is already in the planning stage, with a venue chosen.

SHE in Gabrovo has its date set for 3rd of July and the support of an award-winning photographer!
