Global Voices Summit: When the World Listens

The final panel of the summit included presentations on several phenomenal projects including the following two:

  • Blank Noise Project: A blog put together by women in India to blog about “eve-teasing” or rather sexual harassment in the street. The women created a movement offline that impacted the mainstream media.
  • Ushahidi Project: Many are already familiar with this project and we’re all looking forward to upcoming innovations. For example, Ushahidi 2.0 will be downloadable.
