Launch of “That’s What She Said”

14 May

I am happy to announce that our Facebook page for our campaign was launched a week ago. So far, we only have 22 likes and that’s because I’m not sure people really know what we’re about. So I’m going to take the time to explain.

This blog has mostly been a collection of rants of mine but I have decided to turn these rants into something good. Something that can benefit other people. “That’s What She Said”, is what I’ve decided to name my on-going project (thanks to Iri De Jesus). This project will consist of a series of events and workshops at schools (and any other place that will support us) to discuss the issue of women against social pressures.

My team and I (if you’re interested in participating let me know ASAP) , are currently working on developing a curriculum for the discussion groups we plan to hold at our test middle school and test high school hopefully sometime in the Fall.  Over the summer we plan on making a mini documentary to promote our program and further explain the great need for something of its kind. We also have an event in mind in order to stimulate conversation about the pressures that come from the media about body image. You can read about this event here. 

If you like what we’re up to/want to give us a shout-out- “like” us on facebook!

    This project sounds great! I’m really proud of you for working on women’s issues. I definitely think its an issue that needs to be discussed on a local scale.
