Anne Lasimbang

Anne Lasimbang is a member of the Dusun ethnic group in the Malaysian state of Sabah, Borneo. She has been an advocate in the fight for indigenous peoples' rights in Malaysia, and in Asia as a whole. She has also been involved in the local women's activities in Sabah, Malaysia since 1983.

Anne Lasimbang explains to Beng Poblete-Enriquez that due to lack of jobs and opportunities in the Dusun community, the indigenous men are frustrated.

As a result they're experiencing psychological problems, resorting to alcohol abuse and abusing the women.
