We have had workshops, trainings, seminars and other advocacy activities on women political participation and sensitization on gender issues. At these meetings reached a modest number of people at a time. Then we thought about Create Her Space, a multimedia project where we could reach more through the audio-visual and online media. We put it together, a short film,
online campaign, strategies for amplifying the messages s through strategic
opportunities in the traditional media and got NED on board to fund the project.
Create Her Space is aimed at addressing socio-cultural barriers to women’s
political participation and share the rationale for creating more space for
women in government. The major tool for the project is the short
film A New Dawn which complements the online sensitization campaign on facebook,
twitter, blogs, WhatsApp and BBM.
