Women's Digital Story-circles

As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, this podcast wraps up the video-making and story-telling workshop series led by Pamela Richardson from the University of Sheffield. The project used an innovative, online participatory approach to help women in Zimbabwe to produce their own videos, share their stories, and support each other within digital spaces.
