About Us

We are an organisation working to create a cultural shift and make discrimination and violence against girls and women unacceptable. Experiences and stories are our tools of choice, as we endeavour to make the subject of gender-based violence mainstream. We speak to our large and diverse audience in a language they can relate to, using mediums they respond to - such as music, new media and popular culture.
