As you may have gauged from the section on our history, KANITA started as a research project by a group of committed female and male researchers in Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) who understood the significance of making deeper exploration into the difference in experiences of poverty amongst and between women and men. Although poverty was something that had already been prioritised as a research area that had policy implications at the time, as with many traditional social research, gender was not a category that was well analysed in these inquiries. This research by KANITA’s pioneers spearheaded more serious efforts into establishing a unit and a centre that seeks to understand how gender play important roles in understanding and analysing social norms and practices especially those norms and practices that impact on effort to achieve social justice.
" You're not a victim for sharing your story. You are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth, and raging courage."
