GENDER NORMS: A KEY TO IMPROVING HEALTH & WELLNESS AMONG BLACK WOMEN & GIRLS

Black adolescent girls and young women face special barriers related to both race and gender, which have immense effects on their health, achievement and life outcomes. This is especially the case for low-income Black girls, who have added challenges associated with poverty. “Gender” goes beyond physical biology to refer to the rules, customs, beliefs and expectations for being a woman or man, as well as the inherent inequities of power and privilege usually associated with these practices.

To mark International Youth Day, 2014, IOM has produced a short film, titled ‘Letter from a Refugee’. The film features moving, honest interviews with a group of young ladies who have fled Syria; they describe the extreme fears, mental health issues and ongoing hope they experienced as young people in a war zone.

SYRIAN GIRLS TELL THEIR REALITIES, CHALLENGES, DREAMS – IOM DOCUMENTARY VIDEO

12 August 2014 – Lebanon/Syria - IOM today launched a video documenting the hopes and fears of a group of young Syrian women in Lebanon to mark International Youth Day, which this year focuses on mental health. 

“Letter from a Refugee” follows their emotional journey from fleeing the war in Syria, the stress of separation from family and friends, the difficulties of adapting to their new environment and, ultimately, the discovery of their own inner strengths.

The video was shot at DARI, a Recreational and Counselling Center for Families in Baalbeck in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, and is the result of a creative self-help workshop – part of an Italian government-funded IOM project: “Psychosocial Support to Crisis-Affected Youth and their Families in Syria and Neighboring Countries.”

The IOM project has provided psycho-social help to over 220,000 displaced Syrian young people and their family members in Syria and Lebanon and trained some 1,290 mental health professionals in the two countries since June 2013.

“Good mental health is not only the absence of mental disorders, but is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stresses of life and is able to make a contribution to his or her community,” says IOM Head of Psychosocial Support Guglielmo Schininà.

“Young people on the move, including refugees, displaced, unaccompanied children and young people left behind by migrating parents, often face stresses that are not considered “normal.” Their ability to contribute to the life of their community of origin and host community is often hampered by administrative, cultural and social barriers, and stigma,” he adds.

“This video and animation laboratory helped these girls to acknowledge their suffering, share their experiences, establish solidarity with each other and explore shared coping strategies,” he notes.

 

Following the ISIS symbols and categorisation in the Arab World , with the N for the ‪#‎Nazarene‬ – solidarity w/ Christians of Irak Mossoul,

on the Lebanese social  networks a picture was created with the letter “M”  M for that doesn’t matter to you, whether I am a Christian ” Masihi” in arabic, Whether I am a “Muslim” or an Atheist “Moulhid” ….

M means doen’t matter for you “Ma Khassak”  or in Lebanese almost a “fuck off”

Many of us noticed recently that most Lebanese media, to not say all, are either sharing inaccurate news just to be the first to do or using titles that draw attention by adding keywords like “Sex”, “Nude”, etc. to get more readers.

Despite being one of the best newspapers in Lebanon and the non necessity of such behavior, Annahar newspaper is using these keywords in many of its latest posts.

Today, few hours after publishing an article about a gay marriage that took place at Faqra (with photos and names), the newspaper announced that the article is inaccurate and merely laid the blame on the writer.

Unless getting non professional journalists which is something Annahar does not go into I think, the newspaper and the Editor In Chief are as much responsible as the journalist in my opinion. All what can be said in this situation is: “RIP Ghassan and Gebran Tueni“.
