16 días x 16 historias: Cuenta. Escucha. Actúa.

El acto de contar una historia es transformador.

Cuando contamos una historia estamos definiendo la experiencia. Nombramos a las/os protagonistas, narramos el acontecimiento, definimos los valores y decidimos qué detalles son importantes. En otras palabras, estamos construyendo la realidad.

Cuando escuchamos una historia, permitimos que nuestro punto de vista se desplace y se sumerja en otra realidad. Cuando escuchamos activamente, también desarrollamos una comprensión más profunda.

PhilippinesNica and Jothi from the Foundation for Media Alternatives shares their story about the struggle for legal redress for technology-related violence against women in the Philippines.
