IARS works directly with young people, employers and professionals who support young people. All our work is guided by young people themselves and based on carefully researched evidence. We know that sexual harassment and discrimination in school are still present in 2022, affecting young people’s mental health and relationships.
In the UK, at least 37 %of female students at mixed-sex schools have personally experienced some form of sexual harassment at school.
Only 14 % of students who have experienced sexual harassment reported it to a teacher.
Over 27 %of secondary school teachers say they would not feel confident tackling a sexist incident if they experienced or witnessed it in school.
IARS has been championing women’s rights since 1998 through research, campaigning and training on Gender Based Violence, Gender Discrimination and Sexual Harassment.
Our 20 years of experience in working with young people and educators allow us to create interactive experiences with long lasting impact either online or on site.
Currently we are working in 3 gender based projects
Children First – tackling dating violence in schools by creating an online game for young people to explore and discuss gender stereotypes in the context of healthy relationships, and creating an online learning platform for educators to address gender-based violence in a school setting (www.childrenfirst.info)
FREE from gender-based discrimination in schools – creating resources for parents and teachers to work together to tackle gender-based discrimination and sterotypes (www.projectfree.eu)
