This project encompasses 3 stages; past, present, future. 

At first we introduced some acclaimed and influential women of past societies. Secondly we represented women, combating discrimination in various occupations, by means of an interview. Eventually, we asked our audience to provide us with experiences in which they’d faced educational and social discrimination.

Plans for evaluation:

Assessing the target community in  cases like Iranian history’s impact on  past societies of Iran, the problems and challenges of women(i.e GBV for the most part), measuring how well did the target community combat challenges. Collaborating by sharing personal experiences on the concept of GBV via answering questions asked on our Instagram page. Evaluation of self-confidence and self-esteem.

The number of views, likes and shares in the whole project was to be 40,500,700 in order, but the numbers reached were 52,567,793, which exceeded expectations. And how to participate in sharing the experiences of the girls in the community and reviewing their response, there was a complete increase in confidence and hope for the future. During the preparation of the documentary video, the enthusiasm of interviewees was noticeable. Pre-test questions were 23%, but the same rule applied for post-tests, which was 72%, which showed an average increase of 49% of the audience after the project was done.
