Irene Agrivina

Born in Yogyakarta in 1976, Irene Agrivina experienced firsthand the seismic social and political shifts that unfolded across Indonesia following the end of Suharto’s 31-year autocratic rule in 1998. Among the Reformasi period’s most significant changes was the easing of restrictions on freedom of speech, which coincided with the development of the internet.
