Women’s meaningful participation will help the revolution succeed faster, say activists

Today, on International Women’s Day, we respect and honour Myanmar women who are working towards democracy and human rights. Are women participating meaningfully on the political front? If not, why not? Are their contributions and expertise being fully valued?

In this special Doh Athan Doh Talk (‘our voice, our talk’) discussion we put these questions to Democratic Party for new society Co-General Secretary Daw Hnin Hnin Mway, Women’s League of Burma General Secretary Daw Nang Moet Moet and the General Strike Committee of All Nations executive committee chairperson. This episode is produced by journalists from Frontier. The podcast is in Burmese language.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast about human rights issues in Myanmar. It is made by local journalists with media partners from across the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle and the support of our donors.
