FULL DEBATE:


On November 4th 2014, Mads Ananda Lodahl and Anthony Keedi from the Lebanese organization ABAAD met in KVINFO’s library to talk about strategies to change people’s mentalities and the group dynamics that foster sexism, thus pave the way for gender based violence and hate crimes.

In the debate between Mads and Anthony, they share the aim to end hate crimes and gender based violence. Anthony Keedi works from Lebanon with the organization ABAAD on engaging men and boys in the prevention and combating of violence against women. Danish writer and lecturer Mads Ananda Lodahl has been fighting hate crimes against sexual minorities for more than ten years, at the same time working to put rights for queer people on the public agenda.

They talked upon notions of masculinity and what it means to be a man when working in this field. And about the implications of cultural and religious norms and practices on society’s perception of gender and gender roles of masculinity and what it means to be a man when working in this field. They also talked about the implications of cultural and religious norms and practices on society’s perception of gender and gender roles.
