No Action Too Small
Too often, whilst watching wars unfold, hearing of refugees dying out at sea or reading of yet another abuse, rape or murder, the words “What can I do?” escape our lips. But what we all too often forget is the ripple effects that a single action launched with a simple intention can yield. Using her own experiences in seeing this particular truth unfold, Onjali relates her story on the creation and unexpected journeys Making Herstory continues to lead her on, and why there is no such thing as an action too small.
