The challenge of the competition is to design a women’s house that aims to promote gender equality as a key factor in rural development. The architecture must be a space dedicated to hosting activities that focus on education, raising awareness, and developing the village in the name of equality. The main rule of the competition is to strictly use local materials that can be obtained within walking distance in the nearest villages.

Part 1. Reflection. The subject's attention is drawn to himself and to his consciousness, in particular, to the products of his own activity, as well as any rethinking of them. Reflection is also commonly seen in relation to a person's capacity for self-development.

Part 2. Initiation – corporeality. Initiation is one of the manifestations of social solidarity. In the process of initiation, a person encounters a being, which significantly changes the very structure of his existence. Corporeality, among other things, is aimed at a person's independent comprehension of his body and its criteria of significance.

Part 3. Agency – openly discuss. In general, it can be defined as a person's ability to act as an independent agent and make an informed and free choice. Agency is tied to the legacy of liberal humanism, which is central to democratic citizenship.
