Starting Thursday 11th April at 10:30am EST, Sylvia Global Media and Amina Doherty are excited to present a new 6-week program highlighting the creative efforts of young women from around the world. Young Women Speak Out is an opportunity for young women to share their views and experiences as ARTivists working to advance women’s rights in different ways. These speak outs are a form of consciousness-raising, creating a space for women to listen to each other, express themselves and share some of the amazing projects they are working on. We’ll be talking feminism, fashion, leadership, music, art, philanthropy and more!
Sylvia Global Media inspires girls and women worldwide through challenging interviews and content based around global concerns.
