The files attached here offer information and activities for teaching about gender-based violence. They might be useful for girls' or women's groups, or for school activities.

The files come from the UN Population Council's "It's All One" curriculum. The full curriculum has materials for teaching about gender, sexuality, reproductive health, and communication and relationship skills. The full curriculum can be accessed here:

Comment on this Resource Exchange


Thanks a lot, Liz.

We are currently running a programme on the same topic and it is good to have additional materials. The enrichment that we anticipate from having more resources gives me joy.

It is really aching to see women cry, when they would be appreciated and celebrated for giving life, bringing joy, healing and comfort; it is also diffucult to observe that the tenderness, care, smiles that they readily share are easily ignored.

One day, hopefully soon, this story will change. I hope that it disappears with the adult and older generations of the current times.

How I wish those who are not born yet and the younger are educated accordingly.


Hello Elvire - 

I'm glad to hear that these materials might be useful for you! I wish you all the best with your program and hope that you will share shories with us about the challenges and successes that you face.

Yes, I agree that womens' tenderness is often not appreciated. We must also remember that men can be tender too, and that we should try to encourage this tenderness instead of teaching men that they must always be strong. I believe that allowing men to develop their emotional side, which they possess naturally but are often taught to surpress, will do wonders for reducing violence against women around the world. At least, I think this is the case in my country--do you think this is true in Cameroon?


In solidarity,


Hello Adah -

I actually have lots of materials on sexual and reproductive health--I used to teach this topic. I don't remember how much of the materials are in English (I used to teach in Spanish) but if you are interested just let me know and I will look into it and make sure to share them with you!
