As you should know, violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today.
Gender inequality persists worldwide. Therefore, achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls require more vigorous efforts to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination that often results from patriarchal attitudes and related social norms, as stated by the UN Secretary-General, in his latest report on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
To collaborate in the fight against this problem, we want to celebrate on November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. As a common activity for our Erasmus project, we propose to make the viewing and analysis of the film “Sara is not alone” with all the students of our clubs.
Sara is not alone, we are with her
Analysis and reflection of the film. Spanish Erasmus Club
Appointment, at least 5 occasions in which Sara is being mistreated by her boyfriend.
We think that when She goes to look for him at work and he pushes her and puts her in the car; when he undoes the suitcase and pushes her in his room. When he hits her in the brother’s house. When he hits and leaves in the field. And finally we think that psychological abuse is given throughout the film.
Explain what Sara feels on each of those occasions.
We think you will feel scared, afraid and panicky. We believe that she does not face him for fear of him reacting violently.
What do you think of the decision Sara finally takes?
We believe it is the correct one but I should have done it before.
What consequences does Javier have for Sara?
Destroy the love relationship and run out of it.
Do you think you would act in the same way in a similar case?
At the first abuse I would denounce him and leave the relationship.
What happens if it happened to a friend of yours?
I talked to her so that she felt safe and could report the abuse with the support of the people who love her.
We think that what happens to Sara really happens to many people. There are many who suffer abuse in the couple and for fear of the reaction of violence are silent. What we think is that if we know of a close case then denounce that case.
Now it’s your turn to become aware, we wait for your answers
