The goal of Parindah is to gain insights from diverse places and topics and bring them to you. On the list until now: Morocco, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Select one of these from below and start reading about gender equality in these two fundamentally different places. Soon to be added: onward migration in Somali communities.
What’s the situation around gender equality in an Arabic country like Morocco? Can we trust the picture that is painted by the media? Are women really so suppressed in this corner of the world?
A series of interviews with men and women from different ages and backgrounds illustrates a story that may be unexpected to you.
The suggested epitome of equality
Denmark, Sweden and Norway are getting a closer look in this series. Is this place really as gender equal as we think? What do the citizens themselves have to say about that?
Approaching this topic through interviews, a museum review, and a visit to the 2019 Gay Pride in Stockholm.
Soon to be published
From a long tradition of nomadic movements to their neighbouring countries, to fleeing from internal conflicts in the 20th century, migration is a familiar concept to the Somali community.
In my Master’s fieldwork, I talked to Somali men and women, first- and second-generation in the Netherlands, and their perspectives on migration.
