“Fiction can be an engaging, non-confrontational way to set the scene for constructive conversations, even on disturbing issues. We hope that ‘Be 100 Ragl’ can help to enlighten men and women on how to build a more just and equal society, together.” – Antonella Notari Vischer, Womanity Foundation
Launched on March 1 2014, this Arabic radio fiction series on the role of women in society is on air in the Palestinian territories on Radio NISAA FM and will be broadcast in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, and beyond. Produced by the Womanity Foundation, it is designed to foster constructive debates on women’s rights and their role in society by offering new ideas and perspectives, challenging stereotypes, and providing information and knowledge – all by means of entertainment. “’Worth 100 Men’ aims to inspire women to go beyond what they are told they can be, to encourage them to overcome their challenges and become stronger, more assertive,” Yann Borgstedt, president of Womanity said.
