Non-Verbal Communication

Based on discussion, communication is key when it comes to women empowerment. The web is a powerful tool to reach people, because it's cheap and easy to access. However, I think it's important to realise that most sites are English. Are there other ways to promote women empowerment non-verbally? Off of the top of my head, I think that videos and photographs can send strong messages. I think creative thinking could improve the way we reach people.

    Communication has always been a key to driving social change, you are right, in most cases marginalised girls and women cannot read english, however pictures that portray powerful messages can be key in communicating the same message.

    In most places in Africa, the web is not cheap and easily accessible. A number of organizations in Uganda for example have for long been using billboards with pictures that send powerful messages on issues like behavioral change. And just like you mentioned, they do send a powerful message!
