This video is the real work. Notice the fear subside. The technique of asking the men in charge how to communicate, so the chief and the other men speak aloud the story: "Helping women brings good things."

Call to action :You can become an activist with 5 words. 

Humans love stories. Cultures are define themselves with them.  The ones that are important, we repeat and ritualise.  Simple stories like "Good morning" and more complex ones like "Helping women brings good things."Stories power comes from how they spread.  Sometimes, it is not enough to think something. You must find ways to write, repeat and make the sounds that vibrate the story "Helping women brings good things" enthusiastically and often. 

If you meet someone who does not think repeating these word is really useful, then it is likely they do not live in a place where there is a house hold expression that assert that domestic violence is proof of love.  Unfortunately It is a household expression inmost of the world. 

Repeating these 5 words repeatedly can change everything. "Helping women brings good things."

"Helping Women Brings Good THINGS", the movement, began in ethiopia.

 

Curiosity is how we grow. A traveling caravan with a storytelling magician proved to be a profoundly effective way to spread  new ideas, by word of mouth, in remote, often illiterate, isolated, cultures. Ethiopian YWCA and Cause to Wonder made direct contact with almost 8,000 villagers. The magic words, “Helping women brings good things.” there is evidence that the phrase stuck. It is remembered and  continues to spread.
