Oii My Size on Radio 4
The three young women behind Oii My Size have been interviewed on Radio 4 about their award-winning work.
Appearing on the current affairs programme "Broadcasting House" last Sunday, Savannah Ali, Sanna Sodki and Shanice George, discuss a range of issues, from chat-up lines to sexting to actor Emma Watson's gender equality speech.
“It was an exciting experience," says Savannah. "It felt like an opportunity to really get our message out there to inform young people that they have support and can be involved in the solution. We feel we are making a difference now.”
