This story was made on a 1 day SnapShoot Storytelling Workshop at Al Balad Theatre in Amman, Jordan. The story is part of the ´Challenge My Story` project which is a project that aims to explore differences and similarities in challenges that young men and women in Jordan face in relation to gender-related topics such as discrimination, harassment and physical or mental abuse. Through the empowering method of Digital Storytelling, the project encourages debate on gender equality and gender roles in the Jordanian society. In this way, the production of digitalised personal stories becomes an incubator for debate as the stories convey opportunities as well as barriers which young Jordanian women and men face.
