my list of interview options
Hello everyone! I haven't been able to talk and interview my partner and work on our bios as I havent received any contact from my friend LIBA. I hope we'll be able to meet soonest as I am already excited to do our 1st assignment.
I'm moving on the the next part which is the listing of women activists that I would like to interview. I have two choices :
Leticia Pangilinan Garcia is a woman activist who is active in the local women's movement here in our place. She's working on an initiative that helps the prostituted women in the community through education, advocacy and provision of alternative livelihood. Some would perhaps raise their eyebrow and think that prostituted women don't need help since they enter the profession by choice. But working with them, Leticia thinks otherwise. Many women were forced into prostitution because of poverty and life's circumstances such as becoming a victim of incest rape. She believes that they are among the most vulnerable and are among the most exploited. It would be interesting to know what shes doing and how her work impacts on these women.
Attorney Beverly Musni is a fearless human right advocate and a local leader here. She represents the KARAPATAN, a human rights watchdog here. Her life is dedicated to the protection of the rights and the defense of marginalized people whose rights are being violated.She is very active in rallying the people to oppose the government's effort to extend the term of our unpopular president which is due to end next year. She believes that the government must be made accountable to the people.Despite threats, she remains steadfast in her political conviction. Where does she gets her strength? How does she deals with these threats? We could derive inspiration from her life.
