“Fair Sex” is a project run by the Åland Island Peace Institute, which aims at the prevention of sexual violence and the promotion of gender equality among youth on the Åland Islands. The project includes interactive workshops for students at secondary schools as well as training and consulting activities for teachers and headmasters on how to promote gender equality in school. The project also has an outreach perspective targeted at schools and the society at large.
Fair Sex started in 2011, as an information campaign on the Åland Islands within the international, EU-funded project “Challenging Gender Roles for Prevention of Trafficking”. With financing from the Government of Åland, the material developed in the original campaign was later developed into interactive workshops for students in their second year of secondary school. Since 2012, the project also includes training and consulting for teachers and school managements on how to work against sexual harassments in schools. in 2013 this work has focused on the development of gender equality plans.
