Saroja is a journalist and social entrepreneur based in Berlin. She is currently developing a series of multimedia and digital storytelling events in European cities, intended to amplify marginalised voices through inclusive, two-way dialogues. This means enabling audiences to participate in the production of media, instead of simply consuming content created by traditional broadcasters and newspapers.
One of these projects is the development of a comics festival for women and girls, which includes workshops, discussions and screenings. Comics have spent centuries catering to the tastes of boys and men, and populating their fictional worlds with women who are victims, harlots, harpies and dopes. But an army of powerful, quirky, fast-thinking heroines is emerging, and they are inspiring women to pick up a pen and tell their own stories in comic form.
