About this Episode
There is a cost to speaking up. History has shown, time and again, that speaking up can be life threatening. Iconic heroes, such as Gandhi, Mandela, Frida Kahlo, Malala and many others, shouted and fought for equality, freedom, justice, the truth and suffered for their cause. It requires courage, conviction and emotional strength to give a voice to causes that matter.
We keep silent because the dominant culture may punish in order to remain in power. Punishment can mean loss of job, ostracism, humiliation, imprisonment, torture and possibly death. We may or may not face such extreme situations in our daily lives. But it used well, a small voice can bring about big changes in the world.
How can we use our voice to speak about the issues that matter to us? What are the consequences of staying silent?
