Diplomacy and Dialogue – Conversation with Miao Po Ya, Taiwanese Council Member and IVLP Alumna

As part of our Social Justice Series, Citizen Diplomats joined to hear Taiwan’s covid success stories. Miao became one of the first ever openly lesbian politicians in Taiwan when she was elected to Taipei City Council in 2018 as a member of the Social Democratic Party. She has since gone on to become a driving force advocating for issues such as the abolition of the death penalty, judicial reform, gender equality and labor rights. She was named among the “16 women fighting for fairness in Asia” in June 2020 by Tatler Asia.
