01:25 – Finding Mr. Right
Dating is only a recent phenomenon in countries like India but now dating apps are flourishing. What role does the generation gap play in countries like Indonesia or Taiwan? Are traditional and modern lifestyles compatible? Three women tell us their experiences with online dating in this HER episode.

13:30 – The Meaning of Marriage
Marriage was once seen as a social and economic necessity. The equation that marriage makes us happy and divorce is a failure still prevails in many societies. But does one really have to get married to become happy? In this episode of HER, we want to explore the different ways women navigate the topic of marriage. What does it mean to them?

DW presents: HER
In recent years important steps have been taken to strengthen women’s position in South and South East Asian societies dependent on the extent of their economic development.

Reforms of basic rights and legal systems, demographic changes and more dynamic civil societies have made this transformation possible. Despite all progress enormous challenges in various parts of Asia still lie ahead especially concerning gender equality.

With this in mind the focus of our multimedia approach is on the lives of women from India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan. We show their experiences with stepping up, health, depression, dating, marriage and beauty.

Each episode focuses on one topic featuring three women from different countries and different backgrounds. The topics are universal and controversial.
