Shiftbalance is a think and action tank sparking conversations on the need for a more balanced society.
It is a positive activism platform wishing to renew the conversation around feminism in particular and gender balance in general.
Making it more fun, more inclusive, more visual and creative.
Our mission: to collect, produce and spread information on everyday sexism and existing solutions!
For two years, we gathered research on the best tactics used by the social entrepreneurs and activists around the world to bring more balance between the genders.
This book is a very practical guide, freely available online and it's a toolbox for those who want to become balance-makers, themselves.
If you want to learn about feminism 2.0 and how to leverage new media to challenge the patriarchal structures, join us for a fun and interactive session!
From January 16th to February 8th, we will be teaching in Beaconhouse TNS Campus in Lahore our crash course on social activism! Students will learn the main tactics used by social activists to change the world and imagine which activity they can launch to improve their community. Our objective: train the next generation of changemakers!
Then, on February 10th, we are proud to officially launch our book Balance the world! at the Karachi Literature Festival, the largest literature festival in the country before starting a tour of workshops all around Pakistan!
