The shrinking spaces for indigenous women in the Philippines

Seventh episode of the “#CourageON: Tumindig, Makialam, Kumilos” community show, where we discuss the plight of indigenous women from different parts of the Philippines and indigenous peoples’ rights advocates.

As October marks National Indigenous Peoples Month, we take this opportunity to hear the stories and experiences of indigenous women. What are the unique challenges that indigenous women face during the pandemic? What can we do to provide more support to them?

Titled “#CourageON: The shrinking spaces for indigenous women in the Philippines,” the seventh episode of the community show features panel discussions with indigenous women and indigenous peoples’ rights advocates. It discusses struggles on the ground and possible ways we can help provide more opportunities for indigenous women to grow their skills and protect their rights.

This episode is organized by Rappler’s civic engagement arm MovePH in partnership with LILAK (Purple Action for Indigenous Women’s Rights).

The episode goes live on October 30, Saturday, at 3 pm. Participants can join the live session on Zoom by registering here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/3316342921590/WN_HwG-ssw3Sh-Om2p4fKbNhw
