We created a digital GBV toolkit in partnership with On Our Radar. The aim is that women and girls, men and boys understand the nuances of gender based violence, familiarise them with international legislation and equip them with resources they can use. There is a directory of audio stories that are being collected so that people can understand this kind of violence better and be sensitised about it. We will continue building these resources that can be used globally. Please do get in touch with us if you would like to know more.
An Urban Planning Primer - Reimagining the city from a Woman’s Perspective
We released this primer on Women Friendly cities at the UN Urban Thinkers Campus in Mumbai on 21st June 2018. in collaboration with The Urban Vision at ISDI ACE.
A city designed to make women, children, vulnerable communities or elderly safe is a great city for all. This primer aims to highlight urban design, policy strategies & citizen actions that can make for a more inclusive & safe urban environment for women. This initiative is supported by the Standford Centre on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law’s Collaboration Grant’s Initiative as part of the Omidyar Network Leadership Forum.
Elsa D’Silva and her student liaisons at Yale hosted Inspiring Action- an audio story exhibition of survivors of sexual harassment due to bystander intervention and workshop. This was organised with the aim to encourage conversations on empowerment, self-care and interventions when dealing with sexual misconduct. The team showcased 12 audio stories of survivors with bystander interventions of some kind. It was well appreciated because many students felt resonance and comfort in the fact that people do take action. They also said that prior to listening to the stories they did not think of these common incidents as sexual misconduct and were now able to add to their toolkit of resources.
