Our final episode in this series, "'Excluded and undermined': Female MPs targeted" looks at the threats and harassment against women lawmakers who as well as the reprisals faced by their male counterparts, are also targeted with campaigns of sexist vilification. In this episode, we'll be interviewing Pannika Wanich, a former Thai MP for the Future Forward Party, Senator Risa Hontiveros, as well as Brigitte Fillion, from the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).

"When I entered politics boldly and confidently, like I am, it made people displeased with me. They are accustomed to a modest, sweet, obedient woman. I am nothing like that. I think that's why I have faced many criticisms in politics. "
