International Women’s Day Video – What do Medical Students think?


IFMSA – Perú

General Description

It is a 5 minute video were 45 medical students were filmed to answer a single question: What is the women’s role in society? (Not all the participants are featured in the video because we selected the best answers) This brought a lot of confusion and uneasiness in our participants because most of them had not ever thought on that question so the answers came in a very natural, unrehearsed way so that is the beauty of this activity. It will provide women empowerment, advocacy and awareness about this topic.
