Zimbabwe: Unleashing Suppressed Voices

Our project seeks to train women to be citizen journalists able to tell unheard stories and legitimate viewpoints. We will train women to blog and use digital storytelling techniques to highlight issues not reported by the mainstream media. This will result in freedom of expression and the democratisation of the media. We hope to increase women’s voices in the public discourse and confront violence, the denial, blame and stigma surrounding HIV.

    Dear Gertrude, Thank you for your proposal of Unleashing suppressed Voices on the superglobal highway. I am already excited waiting to hear the stories of the women. More important it is time society becomes accountable for the horrors that are being inflicted on women by men and women on women in the name of marriage, custom and fear of stigma.In case you have not taken care of the back lash. Please prepare the women for the backlash becuse society will fight back at individual, family, community level. Irene Dube Development and Finance Institute for Rural Women Trust.
