We are really chuffed to win this award! Huge thanks to Gender at Work, AWID, BRIDGE, and FLACSO Argentina

From the press release announcing the winners:

The Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG) submitted Aiyoh Wat Lah (Malaysia) which won the GenTruth award, for courage in shedding light on new or growing forms of gender discrimination. JAG acts to raise awareness on sexism, misogyny, homophobia, and/or transphobia and to encourage higher standards of behaviour from public figures and institutions in relation to gender and sexuality.
