Listening to Women Resisting Violence

Bonus episode of Women Resisting Violence podcast released



On International Women’s Day, LAB and King’s College London release a bonus episode of our podcast, Women Resisting Violence, discussing the power of podcasting for social change with leading audio producers from Latin America and representatives from the fearless women’s organisations featured in the podcast.

Podcasting is a way of communicating, of building hope. Women Resisting Violence

This bonus podcast episode, titled ‘Listening to Women Resisting Violence’, produced by Janno Media, contextualises the powerful stories of transformation and solidarity showcased in the Women Resisting Violence podcast.

It is based on an online discussion presenting the podcast project, which foregrounds the voices of women who have both suffered violence and who are building campaigns and initiatives to fight against gendered violence from the grassroots up.

‘We’re not just talking about women’s experiences of gendered violence, but how they’re involved in actively resisting’

We specifically focus on podcasting as a medium to positively influence broader policies around violence against women, speaking to the activists who participate in the podcasts, as well as podcast producers, like WRV’s Louise Morris, for a discussion about contemporary forms of activism and collaboration across borders.

We comment on the power of podcasting for social change, hearing from leading audio producers from Latin America, representatives from the fearless women’s organisations featured in the podcast, women who dubbed the episodes and other activists and creatives in the field.

‘podcast as a medium is very powerful, because in generates intimacy with the listener[…]like whispering in their ear’
