Dear Daphne Partners,
We are writing to announce the launch of our recently completed Daphne project, a short animated video called


Aimed at young people, particularly 11-14-year-olds, this video is about gender stereotyping, bullying and sexual violence at school.

It takes a light-hearted approach and is entertaining to watch, but it carries a serious message: that boys and girls still live in different worlds; that many schoolgirls suffer sexual harassment daily; and that the lives of both boys and girls are often made miserable by peer pressure which forces them either to conform or to suffer verbal, psychological or physical bullying.

The project's aim is to challenge aggressive behaviour and attitudes at an early stage, and in the longer term to help prevent male violence against women and young people.

12 minutes long, and accompanied by a discussion booklet, the video is suitable for use in schools or youth groups of all kinds, to raise awareness and stimulate discussion.

We hope that Daphne partners throughout Europe can:

1] use this video in their work;
2] help promote it through their contacts;
3] mention it in their publications - review copies are available on request;
4] help us organise translation into other languages;
5] mention it on their websites, and perhaps link to our website


For more information and a graphic illustration from the video, please see our website.

Please let us know if you could help us by distributing flyers through conferences or mailings. Tell us how many you could use, and we will supply them by return.

Also, please contact us for a copy of our news release.
Thank you for your help. We hope you will find this project of value to you.

Good luck in your work,
and best wishes  from Terry Wragg
