HERstory: Southeast Asia

26 EpisodesProduced by Agas RamirezWebsite

Welcome to HERstory, the history of Southeast Asia, told from her perspective. We’ll discover historical figures, matriarchal societies, and contemporary female icons — and maybe learn about ourselves along the way. Season 1 focuses on the Southeast Asian age of commerce up to the colonial period.


19.1 | Acehnese Women at War: Cut Nyak Dhien & Cut Nyak Meutia

In this two-part episode, we’ll be talking about Acehnese Women at War. In part 1, we’ll discuss the “Named” women, Cut Nyak Dhien and Cut Nyak Meutia, whose lives are fairly well-documented. Cut Nyak Dhien and Cut Nyak Meutia were two noblewomen turned guerilla fighters who were widowed twice and defied the Dutch colonizers to the very end of their lives.

In part 2, we’ll talk about the less known Acehnese women warriors: Pocut Meurah Intan, Pocut Baren, Cut Nyak Meuligoe, Teungku Fakinah, and Teungku Fatimah, as well as the “Anonymous” women, palace guards, guerillas, and combatants, whose names have long been lost to history.
