#ShoutingBack: Using technology to #ShoutBack for gender equality is a wonderful initiative, and I am happy to share one more entry point here with you.
Starting with myself and my own history, as we used to do in the women’s movement of the 70s and 80s where I have my own #ShoutingBack roots, I here share with you my ‘World Radio Day’ address to the Nepali Women Broadcasters last year, 2014. The theme was ‘Promoting Gender Equality within and through Radio’, and my 10-minute talk shares stories of how the good-old technology of radio can be a mind-blowing tool for #ShoutingBack, when taken into the hands of ordinary people.

Elliot Toger made headlines back in May 2014 with the University of California, Santa Barbara 2014 killings. There he killed six people, injured 13 others and committed suicide.
The police investigation revealed him as an extreme misogynist, inspired to kill women because they had no sexual interest in him. This shocking, yet extreme case, alarmed women across the globe; they took to Twitter and the hashtag #YesAllWomen was born, enabling them to use it on social media to share their stories and experiences of male harassment.

Inspired by an article about blogging for ICT4D  I felt that in this context we need room here for some reflection and critical discussion about blogging in general and this blog in particular: What does blogging mean for whom? Who is reading blogs? Who is publishing their thoughts in blogs? Is this contributing to development and social change?

Michelle Obama was grooving to the tunes of Beyoncé, Demi Lovato and Esperanza Spalding as she celebrated the International Day of the Girl on Sunday. The US first lady tweeted Sunday a link to a “girl power” music playlist on the streaming music platform Spotify. The United Nations has designated 11 October to promote awareness of gender inequality around the world.

I was born in Cape Town, and I studied primary school at Luleka. That is when I was introduced to Grassroot Soccer. I was still young then, I was 10 and now I’m 15. I wanted to get involved because I wanted to be part of Grassroot Soccer, trying to build a new generation that will be free from HIV, and to be on the positive and the safe side.
