About the Project

This project initially started as a podcast, where Sanjna wanted to interview women who are involved in the fields of law and activism. The motivation behind this was twofold; for one, though she is passionate about raising awareness for women's issues, she also finds that there are few spaces for highlighting the accomplishments of incredibly strong and capable women who are working to make the world they live in, a better one. It's why she wanted to create a forum that recognizes those accomplishments, and those stories. The second, related reason for highlighting these women, is that it hopefully serves as a source of inspiration for others who are interested in pursuing careers in law or activism. Though the podcast is still a central component of this project, it is now expanding to feature women and their causes in ways that extend beyond the podcast format, through articles, interviews and visual media. 

About the Team

Hi, I'm Sanjna! I'm studying Global Health and Peace, Conflict and Justice studies at the University of Toronto. I'm most passionate about climate change advocacy, and how the most marginalized groups within a population access justice, either within state-based legal systems, or through other means. 

It's a small team as of now, but we would love to have other people to collaborate with and hopefully grow this project with! If that sounds like it would be something you would be interested in, feel free to contact us at: wa4change@gmail.com
