For centuries, one narrative that has been promoted in many societies is the one about the girl child and as handheld technology increasingly becomes a regular part of children’s lives, there's no denying that social media is impacting the way young girls view themselves.
Using the platform provided by Africa NXT and inspiration from the book ‘African Power Girls', the author, Adebola Williams seeks to bring mainstream the conversation and required commitment in building our young girls to be future-ready, helping them find their superpower to become the best version of themselves.
These discussions would center around clear ways of using the power of communication and especially social media to combat narratives that entrench misogyny and chauvinism into young girls, strategically targeted at disempowering and limiting them.
The session will be divided into three parts:
The first part would be a short reading from the book, followed by a keynote address, while finally, the panel will then delve into why we must tell these stories and the scope of influence of social media and our roles as individuals in building this next generation of girls.
This Session is Hosted by RED MEDIA AFRICA
