Bridget Woods - Blog 5: Interview with Nabila Nasir, Malaysian gender activist and International Development consultant

Post type: 
Blog post

Working at ARROW opened my eyes to the realities of women in many countries and contexts. I was often flooded with emotion after hearing stories, even without being able to relate to, or even fathom them. One such story was from Malaysian gender activist and International Development consultant, Nabila Nasir. As promised in my last blog, here I have asked Nabila some questions regarding FGM.

 Can you please describe your experiences with Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)?

Blog post

Women's rights are such a large, complex, interpretive and convoluted topic of discussion, yet one that is frequently debated and rigorously defined. As the world consists of 50% women, it is no surprise that rights that effect women's movement, dress, education, and economic work and activity are a hot topic for discussion and debate.

Post type: 
Blog post

Some of the areas that climate changes impact women differently than men are through migration, conflict, economics, health, food security, and extreme weather, which includes both flooding and droughts. It is important to keep in mind, however, that none of these areas are truly distinct from one another - they are all very interconnected. This blog addresses some specific examples of the intersections and interconnections between climate change and SRHR.
