To map the contributions made to the gender justice movement in Vietnam – from past to present – a group of young advocates and allies have organized a “knowledge museum” with gender justice exhibits and discussions for the public at O-kia Hanoi.
On March 25, 2018, the Equality Times exhibition opened, debuting three exhibits: the IDEAS KIOSK cataloguing Vietnamese youth’s thoughts on gender, funded by WEQUAL’s Grant; the EQUALITY NEWS ATELIER reports on past fights for gender equality; and the ENLIGHTENMENT CLUB, a salon space for those interested in discussing and sharing their stories about freedom and equality.
THE EQUALITY TIMES is a living-newspaper collecting information on individuals, organizations, and events promoting gender justice in Vietnam from the past to present. The event attracted a great number of well-known specialists in the fields of Gender and Freedom of choice.
