Our multimedia project will look at women's empowerment in Rwanda through the eyes of the country's youngest generation of women. Our goal is to understand how the gender equality narrative that has been promoted by the government has trickled down to younger generations of adult women (18-26) who are first time voters in this year's election, and what they consider women's empowerment in the respective fields.
