Beyond Victims 2021 - Sri Lanka

Our next edition in the Beyond Victims - 2021 brings to you stories of inspiring women political leaders from Sri Lanka


These stories are collected via personal interviews conducted by Ms. Udhayani Navaratnam, a women’s rights activist from Jaffna, Sri Lanka.

This year's Beyond Victims series will be following one South Asian country for each of its parts and highlight the leadership of women in politics aiming to change the narrative to 'women as change-makers'.


This year, we focused on curating stories of women political leaders as much as possible from grassroots and local politics.


At Women for Politics (WfP), we are committed to breaking the narrative of women as victims who need to be saved and seen as beneficiaries and move beyond victims narrative to women as change-makers and leaders through 'Beyond Victims' newsletter series.


In our inaugural edition Beyond Victims series 2020, we curated stories of women’s political leadership during the crisis posed by the pandemic.
