“I think we’re still struggling to figure out the education piece and this has to do with a right-wing element in our population that doesn’t want their children learning about gender and relationships in school. They strongly believe that this education should happen at home between parents and children. So that’s definitely a struggle but we are making progress in schools to include all genders and talk about violence against women and healthy relationships. However, I still think we focus too much on intervention and not enough on prevention. We still have quite a way to go but I absolutely agree that the way to end gendered violence is to build healthy children in school."
