EQUALITY CULTURE PERPECTIVES FROM INDIA, SUDAN AND KENYA BRIEFIn this Equality Culture podcast, we discussed two cultures. The Indian culture, in which we discussed education and the female labour participation rate; and the African Culture (Sub Saharan Africa), where we focused on education, health care access, as well as the physical and sexual violence that threatens females' safety in the region.

ABOUT EQUALITY CULTURE
Culture and various traditions play an integral part of a people who share common everyday experiences. It is a unifying factor which gives each group an identity and sense of belonging detailing the rich history of where people originated from. Many fight and die to preserve their culture and traditions. With globalization, environmental changes and development consistently spreading globally, it has become apparent that some traditional practices promote equal thriving of human beings while others pose a threat to equality and the upholding of human rights.
The #EqualityCulture discussions from across the globe will challenge us to think critically about equality from views of different cultures, thereby creating a first step to a more equal and safer world while embracing our unique values.
This project also aims at bringing volunteers from across the globe to experience a cultural exchange and identify positive traditions as well as speak with one voice supporting the empowerment of females regardless of where you live or what you look like.
