I am one of the creators of Myanmar/Burma's first women's festival. AMA
The Yangon women's festival starts today, AMA about it!
Under a year ago i moved to Burma to create solutions for some of the problems that the country faces. One of these problems is the lack of support for women in health, education, business, arts, anti-violence against women campaigns and so on. Burma has a lot to do to create a more equal society for women, who are the largest part of it.
There is a history of resistance towards creating real progress for women here so we started this festival to celebrate what women achieve in the most public way we could. We are offering workshops, events, radio and tv coverage, seminars and art events to raise awareness and help make a positive change.
AMA about Burma/Myanmar, or the situation here for women.
