King’s academics Cathy McIlwaine and Jelke Boesten, in collaboration with the Latin America Bureau, launch a new three-part podcast series which hears the extraordinary experiences of women addressing and resisting gender-based violence in Brazil, Guatemala and the UK. The multilingual podcast is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese on all major streaming platforms, with episodes released every Thursday from November 25, 2021, in line with the international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence.

The podcast aims to champion grassroots campaigns to better understand the complex and innovative nature of their resistance, whilst learning from the lived experience of women survivors and civil society activists. These important learnings should positively influence broader policies around violence against women, both within and beyond Latin America. The podcast are also a great teaching resource and can be listened to via: https://lab.org.uk/wrv/podcast/
