What does this mean to us?
By Fatuma Matemu, Voice Amplifier / Communications Coordinator, Coordination Team.
The principle of NOthing about us Without Us or in short, NOW-Us! is deeply enshrined in our work and in our hearts. This is also reflected by Oxfam and Hivos the consortium partners within which Voice is placed. On this International Women’s Day, we asked ourselves what does #Eachforequal mean to us individually and for Voice as a programme?
We responded. In pictures, captions, videos, boomerangs and poetry!

#EachforEqual means creating a chain of reaction that unsettles patriarchy.
