Statelessness and Exclusion Podcast #2 - Patriarchy
Our Patriarchy episode by guest speakers Catherine Harrington and Patricia Low, discusses the patriarchy and its role in creating statelessness. The episode will analyse deep-seated patriarchy, how it views and constructs identity, political participation and gendered roles, and how this creates layers of discrimination against women—women are often seen in opposition to men and their rights, and lives, are at the discretion of men.
Catherine Harrington is the Campaign Manager for the Global Campaign for Equal Nationality Rights, a coalition of UN agencies, international, regional and local NGOs, academics and civil society partners, housed within the Women's Refugee Commission.
Patricia Low is from Malaysia and she is a writer, a mother of two, and an advocate from the Family Frontiers Mothers’ Network. She is one of the many women affected by Malaysia’s gender-unequal citizenship law, which denies citizenship by operation of law to children born abroad to women married to foreign spouses.
