#Hearing_the_unheard is a social media campaign initiated by Girl Up Agni. The navigating point in this was social media platforms. The campaign intended to bring forth the varying impacts of the issues faced due to patriarchy. Through a survey based approach, the campaign sought to hear the individual sides of the story to focus on the impacts of the issues faced in everyday life. The provided stories received via the questionnaire were then converted into snippets called “dialogues of power”. These snippets were then consensually put on our social media handles. This way, Girl Up Agni used their potential to mainstream or at least echo the issues which blur out due to the outcries of privilege at various levels.
Till now, Girl Up Agni has covered issues like violence against women, body shaming, sexism, bias against the female child, racism, etc in different socio-political/cultural fields through various other events, lectures, conferences and open-end discussions.
