About This Story
This story is brought to you in partnership with MenTalk. MenTalk is a project under the umbrella project Shaping Education, initiated by the Ahmedabad hub of the Global Shapers Community, World Economic Forum. It is an initiative to target reasons, communications and actions initiated, encouraged and supported by men, which affect the freedom, equity, dignity and co-existence of women in the families, communities and society. MenTalk uses different mediums to spread awareness on gender issues, and also experiments with the methods to vigorously orient boys and girls on gender issues. We do this through collaborations – we have a weekly radio show on a community radio station, we do workshops and events on gender as well.
