TRADITIONAL fairytales got a contemporary take in an initiative in Nijar aimed at tackling gender equality issues.

More than 30 local adults and children took part in a workshop held in the El Barranquete district of the municipality at which much-loved stories like Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White were woven together into the distinctly more Me Too movement generation ‘Rebellion of the Princesses’.

“The objectives of this initiative are orientated to raising awareness among the youngest about values of equality and co-responsibility in the home from an early age, at the same time as smashing stereotypes and gender roles”, explained Nijar Social Well-being councillor Victoria Calatrava.

The municipal women’s information centre, which comes under the council’s Social Well-being department, organised the workshop, with the collaboration of the Junta de Andalucia and the European Social Fund for disadvantaged areas.
