PeaceGeeks tested a new method of peacebuilding in Jordan that centres around women and girls, to develop effective, inspiring and empathic narratives to catalyze a new conversation around norms that limit women’s economic potential and agency in society. The core concept focuses on Jordanian women identifying and creating content but also includes engaging men and boys, who are being trained to see if they can better engage their male peers to rethink narratives that are limiting gender equality.
