tell your own stories

Help us keep the dialogue going, get involved with our project and tell us your own story. We want you to send us your own interviews, your own stories, your friends' stories. We want to hear about you, it doesn't matter where you are.

All you need is a camera and 10 minutes! You can record yourself or ask a friend to record you. Just answer the questions from our script and send it to us (if you use a phone, remember to record on panoramic!)  Here are some instructions:

1 - INTERVIEW

The interview should not be longer than 10 min.  Give short and concrete answers (you can even use a timer during the interview)

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself

  • Can you tell us your name?
  • What personal gender pronoun(s) do you use?
  • Where are you from?/ Where do you live?/What is your main occupation?
  • What about your family?

Which gender you identify with?

  • What are the attributes you give to your gender?

Can you describe a day when you felt empowered in your gender?

  • How did that make you feel?

Can you describe a day when you felt limited in your gender?

  • How did that make you feel?

When I say feminism, what comes to your mind?

  • Do you consider yourself a feminist?
  • If yes, how are you involved in feminism?
  • If not, why?

What do you think should change/remain regarding how gender is treated in our society?

  • What could you change in your own life ?

 

2 - CHALLENGE

Put the video on Pause and prepare this next questions:

  • Think about the first step to start a positive change in your life -- something very simple and specific that can be started today. Write down this commitment in few words on a paper that you can show in the final step of the recording.

exemples: Say I love you when I see myself in the mirror/ Coach my female intern once a month/ Stop judging on the look/ Hire a transgender person

  • Think about the person that you want to nominate for the next “womanity” interview.
  • Ask the person to choose and wear or draw a mustache/ lipstick

 

Once you have these things ready, continue the recording facing the camera and holding what is written on paper

  • Today, I commit to [CHANGE]
  • I nominate [NAME] to take the next Womanity challenge.
