Discuss hurdles to gender equality in the region/ country of your choice, and analyze/ showcase those who pose challenges to those hurdles. The challenges can come from legal, religious, conservative, liberal, diasporic, nonprofit, etc. organizations, or individuals. You are expected to avoid generalizations, and use very specific references. The focus must be on those who are fighting against oppression, and demanding, or dispensing justice.
