Myat Moe Khaing
Myat is an indigenous woman hailing from the Chittagong Hill Tracts. Fascinated by the ability to conceive and articulate thoughts, which remains the lifeblood of a democratic society, she has always been actively involved in debating. Annoyingly opinionated, you can find her writing her heart out, often anonymously, on issues pertaining to gender politics and indigenous rights. After the Rana Plaza collapse in 2013, the world saw the deadliest garment factory collapse in history. Five years on, safety of workers hangs in balance. Our solution evolves from our passion to protect workers' rights that could help us cope up with the horror in hopes that they would never be repeated again.
