UNcomplicated: International Women’s Day

4 March 2020

Why is it so difficult to make gender equality a reality? 

Our UNcomplicated podcast hosts, Sinduja Srinivasan and Jason DeWall, discover that one major reason is the prevalence of violence against women.

For this show marking International Women’s Day 2020, we hear from Kalliopi Mingeiorou, a top UN official working to end violence against women, and also from a survivor of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Maryum Saifee, who’s become a tireless campaigner against this ritualistic and global human rights abuse against women and girls.

UNcomplicated is also available on other leading podcast distribution platforms, including Castbox, Stitcher and Soundcloud.

Music credits: 'The Veil', by the band Signal and Report, written by Chris Hall and Noah Miller; plus their track, 'Abbey Minor'
