This session will explore the power of social media in creating and driving global social movements. We will discuss the dynamics and identity of social movements in the digital age and look at women's rights and women and development in particular - exploring ways in which social media activism/ global digital activism can positively change the lives of women (and men). All of this will be very much around the work that Women for Women International do in the eight war-torn countries it operates in and the concrete impacts and successes to date. An open discussion will be held around the potential and limitations of social/ digital media in creating/ amplifying change in individuals and communities.
