“Challenging patriarchy does not necessarily mean getting into positions of power,” explains Amporn Boontan, Thailand’s regional coordinating group (RCG) representative for JASS Southeast Asia, after having been recently elected as a Sub-district Committee Leader of the Women's Empowerment Fund. “I can use this role to start something. Women are actually waiting for action,” explains Amporn.
