Women Resisting Violence podcast
The three-part podcast series will focus on the inspirational stories of key changemakers, the challenges they have faced and the lessons they can teach us in how to resist intersectional gendered violence against women. These change-makers have reshaped their communities’ attitudes and helped transform the lives of those impacted by violence, working collaboratively to advocate for change at an institutional level.
Potential cases covered by the podcast series and the book include violence faced by migrant women – both within and outside of Latin America; body politics – women responding to violations and demanding their reproductive and sexual rights; and challenging corporate power – looking at women resisting economic violence that destroys their environment and communities. The project will also cover women’s responses to heightened domestic violence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The podcasts will foreground women’s personal experiences — both those of the activists running projects and those of their beneficiaries. They can be used as teaching resources for community groups, NGOs and students.
