Curated by FG Contributor Samiha Hossain Via New Humanitarian The women fighting Myanmar’s junta play a crucial role in the armed resistance, even if most are kept away from the front lines and given little say in decision-making. The Chin National Front (CNF) is fighting for an autonomous land for Chin people within a federal democratic union. It is also participating in Myanmar’s broader resistance to the military junta which seized power in February 2021. The New Humanitarian spoke with six women serving in the Chin National Front or in the allied Chin resistance groups established since the coup. Three of the women will be covered here.
