Madiha Bhatti proves that words can be used as a positive vehicle of change.
Madiha Bhatti made this video as a final project for a women’s studies class on art and activism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. When asked what inspired her to create it, she explained:
It’s a truth reluctantly acknowledged that popular media supplies us with many distorted versions of reality. Images and sounds subtly inform our thoughts an behaviours; they have power. This is my attempt to showcase that power in music. Inspired by my 18-year old brother’s iPod, this poem is my effort to prove that words can be used as a positive vehicle of change.
