In Her Shoes
Raising Voices is proud to announce that the Gender-based Violence Prevention Network has just released the In Her Shoes Toolkit for Reflecting on Violence Against Women in Sub-Saharan Africa. This Toolkit was developed in 2011 in collaboration with over 100 Network members throughout the region using story lines representing the diverse experiences of sub-Saharan African women. It is an interactive, educational tool that raises awareness about the day-to-day reality for women experiencing violence and encourages activism among service providers and community members. By 'walking in the shoes' of survivors, participants gain powerful insight into the many obstacles women face as a result of violence.
The Toolkit is available to download for free in English or Swahili.
