"There's really no such thing as the 'voiceless'. There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard."
- Arundathi Roy
In December last year, Zinester worked with ten girls from Egypt to get their voices heard. Zinester aims to give marginalized groups a voice by teaching them to make DIY magazines and using these ‘Zines’ for social impact and to provide assets for campaigns.
All the girls had just graduated from Save the Children’s Youth in Action Program and were about to start their own small businesses. They wanted to create their own magazine as a platform to share the experiences and challenges they and other girls like them face in their community in accessing decent work. But don’t take it from us: Watch and read what they have to say.
