Harness technology for your benefit, says Fariha

December 5, 2009 at 11:17 am 2 comments

Fariha Akhtar brings the problem to life – talks about it simply, honestly and in very clear and down-to-earth terms.

She questions (in Urdu) why we should let crank calls and harrassment online dissuade us from using mobile phones and the internet for our benefit.

In this video she tells young women that they should take control of technology, share their stories, form communities and support groups online, take advantage of the knowledge, resources, employment, learning and entertainment opportunities that exist online.
