#FemaleForward (Malaysia) :

#FemaleForward2020 presents stories of five women rising above tides and hierarchies: a young girl in Indonesia unintimidated by age and gender, creatively turning waste into artistic products; a feisty lady unsilence by threats in Malaysia, challenging archaic Islamic laws, a relentless journalist and educator in Myanmar, nurturing minds to counter disinformation; a human rights defender in the Philippines, slaying dragons in local politics; and a compassionate businesswoman in Vietnam, building her company with pillars of kindness. Their achievements show how organisations, businesses, and communities thrive when women take on bigger roles.
