To mark International Women’s Day, the Institut Français de Maurice (IFM) asked In Other Words to cover an event about girl power: #ellessimposent.

Over four roundtable events, 13 women and three men debated topics including:

  • Women and the justice system
  • Creativity and women
  • Women in positions of leadership
  • Portrayals of women

The panelists included lawyers, journalists, artists and consultants, with moderators carefully selected by the IFM.

Our role was to listen, mostly, but also to report back. We provided the IFM with a detailed synthesis of the debates. And we created a summary of each discussion for the media.

The IFM then asked us to develop the contents of an animated video, to be broadcast online as part of Regards sur… le leadership féminin. This programme, the first in a series by the IFM, reported on the 8 March event. It also included an official call for proposals from the IFM to promote greater autonomy among girls and young women.

Watch the programme here. (Skip to 27 min 45 for the animation!).

Thank you to the IFM for such a rewarding partnership!
