Women around the world must be taken seriously by society. Providing equality, for both women and men around the world, without creating a "revolution" is our challenge. Many of our solvers proposed to do this by education and proper laws, teaching men and women of all ages to respect women and girls no matter the differences we may or may not have.

What RUBI does

Provide equality with both men and women, in which countries' governments and NGOs who are interested can participate, thus promoting that all countries get involved. Parents would teach their sons from a young age how to treat girls/women with respect. Teachers would teach with genre perspective and provide information of how to stop women discrimination with an App to help teenage girls find their voice, self-defense strategies, books written by succesful women that have had struggle in the past and their history, and facts about how women live in different countries with intercultural perspectives.

How we built it

It was a teamwork generating proposals for our challenges, brainstorming solutions that can help our communities all around the world. Comparing perspectives about the challenge in intercultural contexts. And grouping ideas for having a final proposal.

Challenges we ran into

Different time zones from team participants, understanding perspectives from each culture and selecting just one solution to a multiple proposals challenge. Language and internet connection issues. Also kind of ignorance about some internet platforms.

Accomplishments that we are proud of

We were able to finish no matter the obstacles like time zones or languages. We could understood different perspectives to continue motivating leadership and empowerment. We created friendship bonds and learn more about the cultural differences.

What we learned

Being more aware about things that happen on a daily basis to women, the obstacles just because gender, the perspectives that each person has in his/her context. We also learned a lot about time zones, contexts and perspectives, creating global abilities and intercultural learning.

4-Neath: To solve this issue, we have proposed many solutions to fight for women’s rights and the betterment of their lives. But, one of them stood out the most. Our solution is to make an educational-political treaty that enlightens the rights of women and is integrated by the law.

In addition, all female students should be given a wristband that is connected with the police for use during emergencies. Self-defense classes should also be offered to ensure that they can protect themselves.

9-Sofia: Education shall be made available to females in rural areas through new means and flexible policies without age limits. Parents will also educate their sons from an early age to be empathetic with girls and women.
