For our twelfth episode, we sit down with Caitlin Figueiredo, Founder and CEO of Jasiri, an organisation promoting gender equity through empowerment-based self-defense and leadership programs for women.
Together we discuss the role empowerment-based self-defense plays in gender equity, critiques that self-defense programs face, the need for programs to create space for young women to get involved in politics and Caitlin’s journey working with the UN.
“For us Jasiri exists for those who cannot wait, it exists for women and survivors of all types, of giving them the skills and support that they need to make it through the nights.”
