Feminism in Mongolia

Zolzaya Batkhuyag (Zola, for short) tells us about women’s rights and the feminist movement in Mongolia today.  She describes the issues facing women in Mongolian society and the activities of Women for Change, the group she founded over five years ago.

Zola is joined by Bolortsetseg Ankhaa and Khaliun Bayartsogt, fellow members of Women for Change.

A lot has happened since Chinggis Khan conquered the world.

When I decided to move to Mongolia, my family and friends couldn’t conceptualize what my life would be like in this distant land. Perceptions of Mongolia haven’t really been updated since the 13th century and for many in the global West, mention of Mongolia still conjures images of conquering hordes on horseback.

I’m recording this series of video interviews to allow Mongolians to tell their own stories and to help the rest of the world better understand what the country is like today.

This project has been funded by the U.S. Department of State, but the views expressed herein are those of the people speaking, and do not reflect the U.S. Department of State’s endorsement.
