The Engender project is a collaboration between the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Accidental Films and TV to pilot a television series on feminism, gender issues and key related concepts. The first three episodes explore the concept of feminism; feminism and intersectionality; and gendered representations in the media. In each episode, a set of core issues is discussed in depth in order to introduce viewers to a feminist understanding of the specific topic. This resource pack mirrors the TV series. Developed from research undertaken for each episode, it contains a summary of the content, key feminist quotes, links to more information, and some provocative questions to help deepen understanding and promote further discussion.
