Would like to know more :-)

WOW! Congratulations! This is an extraordinary effort.
As I have been doing research on Gender and South Asian Media for my courses, I think knowing more about this forum will be beneficial. Would you mind sharing some of your work and how can an individual be a part of this forum as I wanted to create awareness about media (mis)representation among young women.
