hullo everyone,

i'd like to propose Sally-Jean Shackleton of Women'sNet - 
http://www.womensnet.org.za/ for her work in training women in South, 
and Southern Africa and Africa in digital storytelling. She has also 
been instrumental in other solid and meaningful activist work that 
connects activism with the real use of ICTs to transform women's lives.

best,
jenny
