Gender Empowerment Through Film and Dialogue is a bottom up research, participatory media, capacity building and advocacy project that creates awareness on the various forms of domestic violence perpetuated as a norm in Nigeria, through participatory film and enlists people to push for laws that would protect them from domestic violence.

At its core, the project is a community advocacy initiative that would push for change from the grassroots.  The project sparks attention and dialogue on real life cases of various forms of domestic violence through personal stories captured creatively through film and get to people in different states of Nigeria to actively push for the domestication of the Violence against Persons Prohibition Acts in their states. The project seeks to get people to actively participate in advocacy on issues that concerns them.

Led by young female champions, the project pushes Nigerians to engage in dialogue and advocacy on gender based violence through the use of participatory films, by showing rather than telling. PAGED Initiative implements this project with support from the African Women Development Fund
