Agenda has launched a new social media campaign to highlight women’s voices and share their stories in their own words.
The campaign, called #ThisIsMyStory, will focus on women and girls at risk – those with histories of abuse, living in poverty, at risk of homelessness, poor mental health and substance misuse – and the women who work with them.
By doing this, we hope to raise awareness of the issues women with multiple disadvantage face and bring them to a wider audience.
Agenda’s Director Katharine Sacks-Jones says: “There is currently not enough support available to help women and girls turn their lives around or to stop problems before they escalate.
“And, importantly, we believe both society and the government need to start really listening to women.
“That’s why we have launched the #ThisIsMyStory campaign and over the next few weeks we’ll be working with women to get their voices heard.”
