Yenny Wahid has watched Indonesia from different vantage points; as a journalist covering Aceh and Timor-Leste, and as confidante of a president besieged by political intrigue. Now, as Director of the religious freedom watchdog The Wahid Institute, she’s attempting to salvage her father’s legacy of tolerance and multiculturalism amidst religious fundamentalism.

Yenny Wahid telah menyaksikan Indonesia dari sudut pandang yang berbeda; sebagai seorang jurnalis yang meliput peristiwa Aceh dan Timor-Leste, dan sebagai orang kepercayaan Presiden yang dikelilingi intrik politik. Kini, sebagai Direktur dari The Wahid Institute yang menyerukan kebebasan beragama, ia berusaha menyelamatkan aspek toleransi dan multikulturalisme di tengah-tengah landasan agama Sang Ayah.
