In 2015, Katerina Vidner Ferkov interviewed me about my work as an anthropologist for the Sunday edition of the largest Slovenian newspaper, Delo.
Katerina decided for this interview after having read my contribution, The Gift of Panties: Protecting One Woman at a Time, in the Indian edition of the Huffington Post. In this post, I wrote about an Indian nurse I met, I called her Jenny, who came up with her own, very precious charity project: offering panties to poor women in order to protect them from health problems as well as prostitution.
In 2014, I contributed to two articles in Vrij Nederland, a Dutch weekly magazine, considered to be one of the four most influential written media in the country. In the article on aging and intergenerational relations, I noted that the relations between the elderly and their adult children may continue via ICTs even when the family members live far apart. In the article on how to increase the number of women on senior positions, I suggested that a longer paternity leave might be one way to help women balance work and family.
