Mission and objectives

We have worked and developed during almost two years the project 'Digital narratives. Gender, inmigration and religion on the move'. The main goal of this research is to identify how inmigrant women in Raval district (Barcelona) use digital media to explore and analyse their online visibility but also their offline presence and social empowerment. We talked to 238 women from more than 10 different countries, cutlures and religions and we found great possibilities for technology to become a tool for women to integrate in their new societies and to achieve equality. World Association for Christian Communication and Otto per Mille Valdesian Church were our supporters. More information: www.womentechreligion.com
