" Achieving gender equality necessitates global collaborative action. Providing a platform for intercultural dialogue is vital to represent the various facets of feminist movements, to identify one's own privileges and to dismantle oppressive power structures. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: s(H)e - the docuseries
s(H)e is a docuseries project based on the belief that the feminist movement is in dire need of more dialogue on issues that are not covered by mainstream media, and that bring to the forefront intersectional perspectives. s(H)e's aim is to give people a platform to voice their opinions and to enable exchange within diverse communities. In order to fulfill s(H)e's mission, the project is rooted in four core values:
- Intersectionality: All episodes aim to move away from white feminism and represent a more diverse set of opinions and beliefs.
- Inclusivity: People from all backgrounds/identifications/etc. are welcome.
- Safe Space: Participants must feel 100% comfortable at all times.
- Dialogue: s(H)e's episodes should lead to an increase in dialogue & exchange not only between the participants during production, but also within audiences.
As a student-led project, s(H)e aspires to expand globally by building up regional chapters and bringing more intersectional and diverse topics into feminist discussions.
