Challenge Accepted!

The #ChallengeAccepted trend went viral on social media over the last few weeks, encouraging women to post black-and-white selfies supporting female empowerment.

We discuss the origins of this online challenge, focusing on why Turkish women are using it to bring awareness to the issue of femicide in their country.
