UN Women Europe and Central Asia Regional Office is implementing a new creative writing initiative, Awake Not Sleeping: Reimagining fairy tales for a new generation, aims to support a dialogue to change the ways society thinks about women’s and girls’ roles, human potential, and rights. The initiative will explore the role of fairy tales in the cultural struggle over gender equality and feminism. For this purpose, the "forgotten" narratives which highlight shifting attitudes towards the role of women and girls will be applied in a collection of new fairy tales. These stories will inform younger generations about changing attitudes to women, gender equality and feminism, having in mind that the stories that children grow up with are vitally important in shaping who they are as adults. The compilation of 25 stories will be launched in the frame of the Paris Generation equality Forum at the end June 2021. We are looking for a communication specialist to support a development of communication strategy for the launching of the compilation of 25 stories and also further its dissemination.
Volunteers: 1 needed
20+ hours per week / 8 weeks
Excellent command of English, experience on creating communication strategies or launching of campaigns. The portfolio of previous works will be asked during the selection process.
