Any patriarchal or abusive household can lead to learned misogyny, mental health issues, and acceptance of abuse in other relationships. In traditional Vietnamese culture especially, the overt messages and some undertones of misogyny contribute to a society of gender inequality and the formation of unhealthy relationships.
The intention of this workshop is to discuss the importance of gender equality in healthy relationships, domestic violence, and emergency preparedness. The primary focus will be on building healthy relationships during the “intimacy versus isolation” stage of development.
