ABOUT AURÉLIE SALVAIRE
Aurélie Salvaire is a French social entrepreneur who has collaborated with Oxfam, Ashoka and Impact HUB networks, and launched the TEDxBarcelonaWomen event and community in
2012. She is also the founder of SHIFTBALANCE, a think-and-action tank collecting, producing and spreading information on everyday sexism and existing solutions. Last year, SHIFTBALANCE made a documentary called Maard Ban, interviewing different
Pakistani activists, artists and entrepreneurs on their understanding of masculinity and the need to rewrite a code of manhood. This documentary has been projected in different countries thanks to the support of the French Embassy and the network of French Alliances.
ABOUT THE BOOK: BALANCE THE WORLD!
This book, which is available online for free, is an anthology of the most innovative solutions to bring greater gender equity around the world. It shares women-empowering, balance-making initiatives by tactic and topic (from education to politics, from leadership to violence) and concludes each chapter with practical recommendations on what readers can do on an individual basis. Let’s shift the balance together!
