"Killed for love, for jealousy."

How often do we read this in the Italian papers?

Brave New YOU helped me realise the weight these words can assume and the significance of sexist narratives, which the media and as such society continue to perpetuate. But most importantly, I now have the tools to thoroughly analyse and subvert them.

The international Youth Exchange in December and comparison with other realities have been fundamental in researching these and other tools. I have learned that we all contribute to the circulation of toxic narratives, and therefore we are all responsible for their deconstruction.

Let’s get the facts straight and end this! Let’s change the status quo!
