This activity will help a group to understand why VAWG is wrong and unjust, both socially and spiritually, and why it is something that needs to be addressed.
This activity is intended to be used as part of a wider process or project, and not as a stand-alone tool without any follow-up. VAWG is a deeply sensitive and difficult area to work on, where harm can easily be caused if approached without care and wisdom. We strongly recommend that you receive training in facilitating and working on this issue, and that you work with, or are supported or mentored by, others with experience of working in this area. We also recommend you carry out more general gender awareness-raising activities before engaging in work on VAWG.
This tool in particular needs to be part of a series of actions or activities taking a community on a journey of recognising and tackling the problem of VAWG. This activity should never be undertaken without a clear plan for follow-up and further activities. Along with other Reveal tools (see the box at the end of this document), we hope that it will inspire communities to act to challenge and change the injustice of VAWG.
