The Barefoot Approach

Filmmaker Sumithra Prasanna visited a unique institution in India that relies on community members, rather than experts, to help solve local problems.

Welcome to Economica's Your Voices section, where we highlight submissions from the I.M.O.W. Community! Stand-out stories will be specially featured here on Your Voices.

This is a space to speak up and share Your Voice. Leave a comment on a story, submit your own work and listen to the many voices of women around the globe as they contemplate the complex relationship between women and the global economy.

Help us curate by recommending stories that inspire you or by leaving a comment! The most popular community stories will be featured as Museum Picks. Other featured content will also be included on the Your Voices theme page, and could even be used as a Your Voices billboard for the Economica home page.

We are no longer accepting submissions for Economica: Women and the Global Economy. Sign up for our e-newsletter for notifications about future submission opportunities.

Thank you for your participation, creativity, and thoughts!
