Hero of the Month
Ounaysa is a student and journalist from Sudan. Her activism began during the 2018-2019 revolution, which led to the deposition of Omar al-Bashir. Although many feminist activists were at the forefront of the uprising, they were never given due recognition or equal voice during the post-dictatorship scenario, and this led Ounaysa to work for women's empowerment in her country.
Ounaysa believes that knowledge empowers people, and that everyone should rise up to fight for an equal voice despite challenges and harmful traditional gender norms.
