I Am A Voice NEW trailer

Beautiful spoken word, song and storytelling combine to explore the many hardships, issues and problems that women around the globe continually face within their own society and search for their inner voices. "I Am A Voice" aims to raise awareness of the issues women face on a day-to-day basis in different communities, cultures and countries around the world. This performance is a development from the original project of "I Am A Voice" in April 2013, which was a 10-week collaborative project working with a Christian Community Group and a community of Congolese women and children. The performance engaged audiences and participants in a dialogue that focused on why and how every hour, every minute and every second women in the Congo are challenged with rape as a weapon of war.
