More Information on Platform:
With Platform, we are legitimizing women’s voices that are otherwise silenced. We are disrupting the notion that the masculine voice is the only appropriate voice of a leader. We are paying tribute to the women who were jailed for speaking and those who were barred from speaking at events they organized. We are creating a space for women to speak without being interrupted and their words explained as if they did not make sense the first time. We are forming a front that will stand by women’s words to protect against threats and commodification.
