Podcast: Women on the frontlines (English)


With the world’s attention trained on the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Myanmar – and the military’s brutal response to them – we’re making select episodes of our Burmese-language podcast, Doh Athan, available in English.

This week, in honour of International Women’s Day (March 8), we document the challenges and experiences of the movement’s female frontline protesters. (Available in Burmese here.)

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast about human rights issues around Myanmar. It is made by Frontier, with media partners from around the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle and the support of the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation.
