Suri is a feminist and a human rights activist, who believes in the equality of men, women and everything in between. Working with civil society, government and international organisations, her activism explores the intersections of gender with religion, race, culture, ability and sexuality.

Shakirah works in the field of Education Technology and advocates for various causes through multiple platforms, including UndiMsia!, CREATE, Projek Layang-Layang and Young Women Making Change (Malaysia).

Fathanah Rafee/Linguistics
