Q1. How can storytelling be used as a tool to end violence against girls and young women?

The fine print:
Footage Foundation designs impactful, sustainable initiatives, accessing and sharing unheard voices of young people on challenging global issues, using local, mobile technology; multimedia methods; and other expressive tools. Our evidence-based initiatives spark change at individual and global levels, forming grassroots movements with compassion and empathy at their core.
#AreYouBraveEnough is a call to action to help us amplify the voices of brave young women who are sharing lived experiences of gender-based violence through our Girl-talk-Girl program.
Girl-talk-Girl has developed a dynamic collaboration between young women at-risk to violence in New York City and St. Petersburg, Russia. Through this project, participants engage in mVoiceWorks©, then produce and share mobile digital stories, which serve as a platform to spark peer-to-peer dialogue. Participants have also been trained as leaders and guided additional young women through the transformative process of telling their stories.
