Women Are Not Objects

In 2016, the reality is that women continue to be objectified and valued based on their appearance. This has a direct impact on our culture, society, and the young girls who are the next generation of leaders and our hope for a brighter future.

However, after watching this two and a half minute video, it will become apparent that there remains a lot of work to remedy the objectification of women. This video may be challenging to watch (WARNING: this video contains some explicit language and images;) yet this is readily available to young girls in today’s world of the internet and social media.

For the points made so pointedly in this video, CHW supports critical programs in its projects to help combat the objectification of women.

In CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village, we are proud to support an Empowerment Program for Girls-at-Risk. This program instills young teenaged girls with the confidence to be who they are and pursue their dreams. As well, CHW supports the operating of programs for single mothers and women who have escaped violent homes; empowering these women to lead independent and stable lives.

Help Canadian Hadassah-WIZO (CHW) combat the objectification of our girls by supporting our Annual Campaign: Giving Hope, Creating Opportunities.
