To get as many stories as we can from a variety of sources, we have built an online social media network through our website as well as through Facebook and Twitter. We have collected stories from women in Afghanistan, France, Germany, Israel, England, Wales, Australia, and the United States.
Sole Sisters is using a specially designed exhibit at public events: “a shoe confessional,” the size of a small closet, that is rigged with two cameras.
