#ICT4D #GirlsInTech #DigitalDrivingChange #GoGirls! "The five girls from Kenya's western city of Kisumu call themselves the 'Restorers' because they want to "restore hope to hopeless girls", said Synthia Otieno, one of the team. {...} I-cut connects girls at risk of FGM with rescue centers and gives legal and medical help to those who have been cut."

"Mumbai-based Culture Machine said the new policy {"menstrual leave" for women on first day of period} was a bid to fight social taboos around menstruation in India, where millions of women and girls face social discrimination, health problems and low self-esteem due to a lack of awareness."

#medianarratives #genderstereotypes What are your thoughts dear W4 friends?
"Recognising that female leadership is not well represented in Western society doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t be exposed to these cultural products. It’s fine for a girl to play at being a princess, as long as she can also kick around a soccer ball, build things with nuts and tools, play the drums and fancy becoming a scientist, engineer, astronaut or firefighter. Likewise, there’s no reason why a boy dressed as his favourite superhero shouldn’t pretend to take care of babies, cook dinner or vacuum the house." says Virginia Garcia Beaudoux of the University of Buenos Aires

#ICT4Dev #Digital4Women #W4 #INCREDIBLYEXCITING DID YOU KNOW that over one billion women in the world do not have access to financial services? Here's the #GoodNews "Digital technologies are extending access to finance to millions of people, including women.

#WonderfulWomen We invite you to read this beautiful piece in Oxford Today about Oxford University Alumna & W4's wonderful Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief Andrea Ashworth: "Among the many dazzling opportunities the Oxford experience afforded her, she says it was finding a mentor that helped define her future. ‘I realised only later, after I finished my DPhil and moved away from Oxford, that what most truly shaped me during those years was the influence of my tutor Julia Briggs – both as a mentor, someone who believed in me, and as a sparkling thinker and soul, a model of scholarly accomplishment, with personal warmth and altruistic can-do."" - Andrea Ashworth

Félicitations à notre partenaire de terrain Afghanistan Libre pour avoir atteint et même dépassé son objectif de crowdfunding. Merci à toutes celles et ceux qui ont donné à ce projet de crèches scolaires. Votre générosité nous touche sincèrement !
Plus de 20 000€ qui vont permettre à des enseignantes afghanes de continuer à exercer leur métier et d’être indépendantes financièrement et aux jeunes enfants de s'épanouir et de jouer dans un lieu sûr.

Icône de la lutte pour les droits des femmes (et européenne convaincue), Simone Veil nous a quittés mais elle continuera de nous inspirer, de nous donner force et détermination pour poursuivre le combat pour que chaque femme puisse avoir le choix, puisse disposer de son corps ici comme ailleurs. #SimoneForever #BoldWoman
