Revolutionary Women in Myanmar

Protests have erupted around the country since the military seized control of the government after arresting democratic leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, on February 1, and declared a year-long state of emergency. Some 60 percent of protesters against the military coup are women who fear their hard-won rights hang in the balance. The military makes use of dalans – local people who are forced to spy on their neighbours and, in particular, to target women living alone whose homes are easy targets for looting and harassment. Do you think that women leadership is now being taken over by women ?
