Taiwan’s online media 4-way Voice has recently launched a podcast named, “Taiwan Made Simple,” which focuses on the difficulties and issues faced by Taiwan’s migrants from around the world.
Hosted by Joyce and Liana, both editors of the platform, the show invites CEOs of various NGOs, experts, as well as new migrants to share their stories and perspectives on a wide range of topics.
A majority of Taiwan’s new migrants are women, and as the world has just finished celebrating International Women’s Day, the first episode of the series featured the CEO of Formosa Budding Hope Association, Sally Yu, who shared her take on women’s issues.
With her 10 plus years of service in Cambodia helping the underprivileged, Sally talked about her experience in helping Cambodian women achieve economic independence, as well as the rise of girl power in SEAsia and the #METOO movement in the region.
Aside from her experience overseas, Sally has been devoted to serving the migrant community in Taiwan, so she shared with the hosts how she has helped immigrant women get used to the Taiwan lifestyle, as well as her observation on the hardship and unjust situation that comes along the way for many female migrants.
