‘In Our Hands’: A Short Film

Watch ‘In Our Hands’, our new video exploring what equality and how women can live freely in today’s society.

We asked an inspiring group of girls, young women and people that identify as female what equality means to them and how we might achieve it. Featuring a beautiful poem by Malaika Kegode, the film reflects the diverse experiences of young people and what they are still fighting for. Looking to the future, we consider how women and girls can live freely and fearlessly in today’s society.

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
