06: Women's social media activism in Indonesian politics in focus - Monika Winarnita

Monika Winarnita is a Research Officer in the ARC Discovery and Linkage New Beats project, whose research focuses on online media and digital activism in Indonesia. In this episode of Research in Focus, Monika chats with Lauren Gawne about how women are using social media to advance their political agenda in the leadup to the 2019 Indonesian elections.
