As the world moves further into the many unknowns of what it means to adapt to life with COVID-19, it is clear that women are being disproportionately impacted in myriad ways. StoryCenter’s Silence Speaks program is partnering with Mumbai-based journalist and Sahiyo co-founder Aarefa Johari to offer a safe, online space where South Asian women’s personal struggles and moments of courage can be shared and virtual community can be cultivated.
During this free, one and a half hour webinar, participants (maximum of ten women) will be invited to express moments of daily life that have challenged them deeply or uplifted their spirits. Silence Speaks co-founder Amy Hill will draw on her years of experience with trauma-informed methods to support women in telling every-day stories of these unprecedented times. Selected stories will, with permission, be published online by StoryCenter; storytellers can request anonymous publication, if they wish.
Please join us at 8 pm Delhi time on Thursday, April 16, to share a story.
This webinar is co-sponsored by Sahiyo and StoryCenter. Sahiyo works globally to end female genital mutilation and cutting (FGMC), and StoryCenter’s Silence Speaks program documents personal stories of women’s health and rights globally.
