Young Timorese Feminists Engage with Nation Building


“The young Timorese women in JASS are taking up this rare strategic opportunity to influence nation-building and their new government,” says Nani Zulminarni JASS Southeast Asia’s co-director. The Timorese were deeply divided over independence and resulting tensions are affecting nascent women’s movements. JASS training provides a safe space where women can surface and address painful conflicts and build alliances and a more inclusive feminist agenda.
