When 24-year old Suci studied nursing at university, nothing was ever taught about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). While she had heard about FGM through her own mother, who had the mildest version of this practice performed on Suci as a baby, it was only once she started working at a clinic that she learnt of the widespread prevalence of this practice.

The Provincial Government of Bangka Belitung Islands and UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment announced on 26 December its partnership to support women's entrepreneurship and women’s economic empowerment in Bangka Belitung Islands. This collaboration reinforced the shared goal of both organizations to realizing women’s rights for equal economic opportunity.
