In this episode, Irma Nasution shares her perspectives about Paulo Freire’s critically-acclaimed book “Pedagogy of the Oppressed”. Is our education system truly liberating?

Instead of helping women achieve their freedom, these actions end up treating women as singular beings all-knowing about entrepreneurialism. Okay, no more buzzwords. Just listen.
