Congratulations to Ndèye Fatou Fall and her BYkids: WALK ON MY OWN for winning Best Youth Documentary Short at the Women’s Voices Now Festival. Thanks to everyone who brought this important film to the world.
The head of the jury says, “WALK ON MY OWN was made by 13-year-old Ndèye Fatou Fall from Senegal. She is just the embodiment of women’s freedoms and the importance of education for girls…This film really shows how important these generational, cultural shifting conversations are and it highlights how much further we have to go in achieving true women’s rights. So again, congratulations to Ndèye Fatou Fall for WALK ON MY OWN.”
