Celebrating A Tar: Women of the Future Award 2023 Winner for Media and Communications

Updated: Jan 11

A Tar, one of our Critical Voices Grantees and Fellows, won the 2023 Women of the Future Awards in Southeast Asia for Media and Communications.

A Tar’s dedication and fearlessness in advocating for the rights of women, children, and the LGBTQIA+ community, often in the face of personal risk, have garnered well-deserved recognition. The judges were profoundly impressed by her commitment to pushing forward the agenda for those whose voices are often marginalized and overlooked.

A Tar’s impact extends beyond accolades, as she has already released a compelling documentary capturing the stark realities since the war in Myanmar. Looking ahead, she plans to release three more documentaries focusing on women, trans-women, and children. Through her regular broadcasts on the rainbow news platform, A Tar exemplifies the transformative power of using one’s influence to uplift and amplify the stories of marginalized communities.

‍“I would like to express my gratitude for allowing a trans woman to participate in this competition and I urge the international community not to forget the situation in Myanmar. We must speak out when we see injustice.”

A Tar’s win is not only a personal triumph but also a testament to the resilience and determination displayed by individuals working tirelessly to bring about positive change, even in the face of adversity. We commend A Tar for her outstanding achievements and unwavering commitment.
