A special focus on Sri Lanka by Preeti Shekar. We examine this more than 30-year crisis from a critical feminist perspective that explores the oppressive patriarchal structures of the nation state and armed groups. Tune in to learn about this devastating conflict between the Sinhalese government and the Tamil Tigers or the LTTE and how it has specifically affected women and children. We also bring you a weekly dose of Jovelyn's world and the women's community calendar.
