I have been curious - what state of mind does an attacker get in, which leads him to do sexual violence against a woman on the street? How might we reach this guy and change his mind at that moment?

​Say 'NO' Day is a campaign for the right of women to speak up! In low-income settings, where sexual harassment is a part of everyday life, many women simply do not know their rights to say NO even when they have the chance.

Hi Bahar, great to see your updates! I am curious about what questions you have asked in the online survey in Persian :)

Dear Beatrice,

So great to see the experience map and the implementation plan you developed. I have live in Nkokonjeru in Biukwe District for several months in 2013, so I can imagine so many young girls in Namuwongo benefiting from your idea :) It is especially nice to hear father’s support on this mission.

In some years, a way to financially support the program could be to open it for international students also. Possibly a foreigner student can cover the expenses of herself and provide scholarship for 3-4 students in the program. This would also bring girls from different cultures together and build friendships.

Do you see it as a girls-only holiday program?

Another idea is that alumni girls of the holiday program could be recruited as trainers when they become older.

As the community prototyper, I would be happy to support the prototyping process of your idea.

Hi Melchior, congrats with the experience map and I love the prototype blog. One other thing you can do is to create a Facebook group where it might be easier to invite people to join and share awareness on gender equality.

When you are asking 'what is gender equality?', are you looking to find out whether people know about the term? In addition, if you would like to get more personal feedback from users, you could ask 'What is your experience with gender equality in your country?'
