Throughout history, female writers have had to fight to be taken seriously. Women’s literature was once thought to tell only the personal and domestic, unable to touch on big ideas and social issues the way that male writer could. Join two award-winning female poets, Oka Rusmini and Irma Agryanti, as they dismiss these perceptions by demonstrating how female voices in literature reflect both important and complex issues.

(This program is presented in Bahasa and pre-recorded)

Sepanjang sejarah, penulis perempuan harus berjuang untuk dianggap serius. Sastra perempuan pernah dianggap hanya menceritakan pribadi dan domestik, tidak mampu menyentuh ide-ide besar dan isu-isu sosial seperti yang bisa dilakukan oleh penulis laki-laki. Bergabunglah dengan dua penyair perempuan peraih penghargaan, Oka Rusmini dan Irma Agryanti, saat mereka menolak persepsi tersebut dengan menunjukkan bagaimana suara perempuan dalam sastra mencerminkan isu penting dan kompleks.
