Pencenter of Georgia is pleased to introduce:

Women leaders from Kyrgizstan (meeting and conversation)

Alina Anisimova, a satellite builder. She is head of the group of young women who build the first ever satellite of Kyrgyzstan. Read more about the space program here: https://www.patreon.com/kyrgyzspaceprogram

Zere Asylbek, a singer who recently made waves after publishing a feminist manifesto song about girls' freedom. That's the most recent Economist story about her: https://www.economist.com/…/a-kyrgyz-singer-sparks-a-debate…

Aidai Erkebaeva, a journalist from Kloop who has been publishing amazing stuff. From her recent stories I highly recommend her research about howKyrgyz authorities were handing out free apartments to the police and secret service employees but completely ignored teachers and doctors: https://kloop.kg/…/uchitelyam-i-vracham-nepodemnaya-ipotek…/
