What I See is a global collection of womens voices coming together to share, connect, and actively shape the narrative of what it means to be a woman. By asking the question What do you see when you look in the mirror?, the Project finds different ways for women to reflect on self-perceptions and female identity, and becomes a platform for them to add their voice. The bigger the overall voice, the more power we have to truly influence the issues that matter. Each month, we pick a particular topic that women have spoken about, and publish a podcast, twitter campaigns, and online debates on themes surrounding that topic in order to go deeper into what matters to women today. The Project provides a neutral platform for the Conversations in order to invite womens thoughts and opinions freely and without judgement.
