UNcomplicated: International Women’s Day

Why is it so difficult to make gender equality a reality? Our UNcomplicated podcast hosts, Sinduja Srinivasan and Jason DeWall, discover that one major reason is the prevalence of violence against women. For this show marking International Women’s Day 2020, we hear from Kalliopi Mingeiorou, a top UN official working to end violence against women, and also from a survivor of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Maryum Saifee, who’s become a tireless campaigner against this ritualistic and global human rights abuse against women and girls.

UNcomplicated: Inside the UN’s big week

Introducing…UNcomplicated: our new UN News podcast

Welcome to the first edition of UNcomplicated, a new podcast from UN News, that grew out of a coffee shop conversation between UN staffer Sinduja Srinivasan and her friend Jason DeWall, who had never set foot inside UN Headquarters. “The UN can seem intimidating and complicated”, our dynamic hosts told us. “We aim to make the United Nations accessible and straightforward”.
