If you want to release some of that rage, this activity is for YOU! Let’s reclaim the relfie and ROAR our anger out in the world!!!
1: Which area of gender and sexual discrimination, harassment or violence makes you mad? Street harassment? FGM? Transphobia? Everyday sexism? The Gender Pay Gap?
2: Check out the links on this page, or in the activity Change-Makers Around the World, or IDEAS FOR CHANGE. Find out which activist or change-making organisation has a slogan or image that you connect with – they will be your relfie partner!
3: Find an image you like which represents your activist or organisation Screenshot the image. Upload into powerpoint, and project onto a large screen.
4: Get the selfie stick, and take a picture of you in front of your activist image backdrop. Play around with the image on photoshop to protect your identity if you’re going to share it online (e.g. cartoonise, blur etc).
5: When you are ready record your ROAR or SCREAM or ANY LOUD NOISE OR ACTION that you want to make that expresses your anger that these are still issues that need to be addressed in the world!
6: If you’ve got the skills, drop the images into imovie, and all your recorded ROARS – add a drum-beat, or sounds from a copyright free source – and play your RAGING RELFIES imovie far and wide! (or just for yourselves). It could be your new ringtone.
7: Something extra? Why not create your own raging rap, by selecting lines from your favourite songs that tackle gender and sexual injustice and violence head on. Read the ‘Metal Mash Up’ poem from the ‘Angry 12 Year Olds’ who did just this:
