What is the power of voice?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    "I am a mother, I am an activist, I am an author, an adventurer, I'm the founder of a non profit. I am a feminist and I am a victim of gender violence. And, more importantly, I am a voice. I am one of over 7 billions voices in the world and having a voice means using it."

    "Many consider that I'm a feminist because I'm a woman. And of course, I want for myself the right to vote, the right for equal pay, the ability to have my own decisions about my body and my future but I don't think it's radical to say that I want the same freedoms as men and that my gender shouldn't have nothing to do with it."

    "I believe that women's right it's a human's rights issue and it does involve men, that does involve the global community stepping up and taking a look at gender equity and gender violence as a real issue that affects everyone."

    "I can feel the apathy that prevents change and action and yet through that apathy and through the outrage that nothing was changing, I wondered why wasn't everyone doing anything about it... (...) and I realized that 'Yea, I am someone'. Individual action does matter. Because in the face of these issues - gender equity, genocide, the environment, sex trafficking - these issues are not gonna be solved by governments and multinational corporations or the would have been solved. These issues are going to change with individual action and individual voices insisting upon change amongst the structures that are there to create change"

How to include men in the gender equality revolution?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    "We know that in terms of gender based violence men still are the main perpetrators and women are the main victims all over the world"

    "Promundo focuses on promoting the positive qualities and positive attitudes of men and boys. If we can talk about the intergenerational transmission of violence, we can also talk about the intergenerational transmission of care"
