Our Breaking Out of the Marginalisation Feminist Participatory Action Research (BOOM-FPAR) partner Ninu Women in Action from Burma/Myanmar, have just released their research report titled “Women as the Others: Chin Customary Laws & Practices from a Feminist Perspective” that focuses on the customary laws and practices of the Chin community from a feminist perspective. The study delves into the impact of customary laws on the lives of women and how they can find access to justice amidst Burma/Myanmar’s plural legal system. The report encompasses Chin women’s experiences in a marriage, divorce, widowhood, and domestic violence. Comparing the past and present practices, it also tries to identify the causes of change, in order to find a way to bring more positive changes for the women in the communities.
