Feature story angles: help needed

Please let me know which would be best for a feature story.

1. Socio-economic situation of a majority of women in Kenya ( i.e. in the slums) and the efforts being made to reclaim their rights.

2. Sexual and gender-based violence in slum dwellings of Nairobi. Efforts by the Government (if any) and the women’s movement in Kenya to liberate them.

Both great choices

I would be interested in both so would recommend you go with the one you are most passionate about and which you can provide a strong narrative for, as well as compelling background information to support your piece. They both would make very interesting feature stories and I know that your writing will shine in both.

Not much help but best wishes with whichever you choose.

You are helping me brainstorm; I appreciate it.

I prefer the first one

Actually, Corine and I just discussed it and feel more drawn to the first. For me, I think you can bring perspective to the situation. Because Kenya is one of the most developed countries in Africa, it is easy to assume that women have more rights than elsewhere. I personally want to know more.

Hi Stella! I'm intersted in

Hi Stella! I'm intersted in both topics - whatever you feel comfortable is okey for me. I'm interested on how the women's movement in Kenya developed their empowerment in confronting short and long term issues in struggling for thier rights.

God Bless and Good luck!
