Julia commented on Empowerment through the Arts

Thanks, Meena! And I agree that the arts can be a great source of conversation, and even therapy. I'm looking forward to learning more about the program in Mumbai - thanks for sharing!

Julia commented on Empowerment through the Arts

Thanks, Jimmy! Those were a few that I already knew about from my own residential area, plus a couple more I found while researching the topic - there are a bunch out there, and I think that the number that already exists further demonstrates how effective this idea could be in any setting.

Julia commented on #GirlsCan: Women Empowerment

I agree - context from these celebrities would make the campaign even stronger. I wonder how (or if) this will expand in the future, and whether more episodes will be created to build upon this idea of breaking gender stereotypes. Perhaps they can get stories from non-celebrities, too, in order to strengthen the feeling of everyday female empowerment.
