Empowering women in Indonesia's villages

Wed, November 27, 2019   /   02:00 pm

Improving the lot of Indonesia's rural women is no easy task. Yet the recently passed Village Law provides a unique opportunity for civil society organizations, government and village leadership to give women a stronger voice in decision making. Indonesia researchers Dr Rachael Diprose and Dr Amalinda Savirani examine the challenges faced by rural women and the programs being developed to help overcome them. Presented by Peter Clarke. A podcast from Asia Institute of the University of Melbourne. Produced by profactual.com. Music by audionautix.com.
