This wonderful quote summarizes the entire philosophy of The Pixel Project. We are all about the small gesture.
Luckily, technology is on our side in these efforts. With the power of Web 2.0, it is possible for people from all over the world to make their small gestures count. Combined together, all of these individual actions will have a big impact on the lives of women.
So, what small gesture can you make? We’ve given you a few suggestions here, all based on the idea of raising awareness. Even if you have only a few minutes to spare, you can help spread the word about the Pixel Project. In doing so, you will help keep the discussion about Violence Against Women going and will further our efforts to combat it.
Let’s end Violence Against Women. Together.
