On Feminism and Feminists of Myanmar's Freedom Struggle, Asia Art Tours Podcast


I talked with Matt at Asia Art Tour for a discussion on growing up in Myanmar & Myanmar's freedom struggle against a brutal military dictatorship. The main theme of our discussion is on Feminism as it relates to the protests vs. patriarchy as it relates to the Military & Buddhist Nationalists in Myanmar.


Some of our conversation points are:


- The history of Feminism in Myanmar and past freedom struggles.


- Feminist tactics of resistance in the current protests.


- How Feminists in the country saw the rule of Aung San Suu Kyi


- How Patriarchy is a negative solidarity between the Military & Buddhist Nationalists


- And how Feminists globally can support Myanmar's freedom struggle without talking over local feminists.


To help Myanmar and its protesters, Chu recommended the following resources:


1. Mutual Aid Myanmar https://mutualaidmyanmar.org


2. I support Myanmar https://isupportmyanmar.com


3. Chu is also a member of the diasporic activist collective called Baydar. https://baydarcollective.org
