If we are to really change the marginalization of women we need to fully understand the background from which it stems. I also think the blog points out the crucial point that there are many cultures and societies within a country and we often overlook that when looking at a global scale.

Considering that this community is indigenous, it makes me wonder how many "more urbanized" men moved into the community and initiated this change in culture. I can't imagine that it was very many. This would unfortunately highlights the fragility of indigenous cultures that may already have functioning and equal gender roles. Still, thanks for writing on such an interesting topic!

How do they adapt to perserve culture and traditional way of life with urbanization and globalization causing migration for economic opportunities. The radio project that empowers women seems like a great idea to perserve their indigenous language and reduce stigma against it as it provides an outlet for women in these communities to have their voices heard by people elsewhere. It saddens me to hear a culture that values gender equality is being challenged by urbanization and I hope they are able to perserve gender equality and the partnership mentality between husband and wife despite the changes.
