#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.
