We’re honoured to have Atonte with us from the UN Women UK’s head office, to talk about this year’s focus on economic empowerment of women and addressing poverty.
In a world facing multiple crises that are putting immense pressure on communities, achieving gender equality is more vital than ever. Ensuring women’s and girls’ rights across all aspects of life is the only way to secure prosperous and just economies, and a healthy planet for future generations.
Hanan Razek is an award winning correspondent with experience from Field Production, Breaking News, Video Journalism and an MA focussed on Global Media and Post-national Communication.
Hanan will tell us about the production of her powerful BBC documentary “Sex for Healing: Uncovering the dark side of the spiritual healing world”, which reveals the hidden world of sexual assault and exploitation of women by men working as religious healers known as “raqi” in Morocco and Sudan.
Hanan will talk about the power of using media to educate and create awareness – and how this can empower women to speak out and create change.
Jo founded RubyMoon to use her skillset to promote women’s economic and social empowerment globally, whilst turning fashion and textiles into a force for good with positive environmental impact.
Since 2010 over 2020 women and their families have been positively impacted through micro-finance by purchasing Gym To Swim activewear clothing from RubyMoon, which also cleans the ocean of unwanted drift fishnets.
When Mi created the first EyeStorm Visibility Programme for Women, she never imagined it would grow to an award winning social enterprise with events, training and a video podcast in just a few years.
Now with the groundbreaking Speak Up Woman! speaker training programme and live event for women, EyeStorm Women is supporting even more women to step forward and speak up.
Mi will report on the Gender Equality UK Survey that was launched last year and the shocking – although unfortunately not entirely surprising – result.
