@Shan State, Myanmar
In September 2018, PFG was invited to give a 3 days workshop on CEDAW & gender by Shan State Women’s Organization (SSWO) in Wan Hai Village. A huge shout-out to Shan State Women’s Organization for their invitation and collaborations.
In Mansam village, PFG provided workshops on self-defence, SRHR education, gender, and violence topics with adolescent girls.
@Sagaing Region, Myanmar
In 2020, we delievered a two day feminist workshop in Sagain University of Education with soon-to-be teachers.This is huge for Purple Feminist Organization because a lot of the time, we turn think that gender training causes participants becoming one-sided thinkers of and for women.We wanted to make sure participants think both of men/boys and women/girls because this is our reality. Our reality is that there are a lot of men who want to cry and have to hide their emotion or turn it into something manly so that our society can accept it. And this is a violation of freedom of expression.
That is as important as women having the choice to do whatever they want.
We matter. We both matter equally and that’s it!
