On the Rag: We learn more about Muslim feminism
Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden, Michèle A’Court and Mahvash Ali tackle the past month in women, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop. For our March episode we have brought in an extra special guest to reflect on the month in New Zealand that was. Mahvash Ali is a producer for The Project NZ, and describes herself a sassy Muslim woman, a motor mouth, and claims that coffee is addicted to HER. She also brings with her a wealth of knowledge about Muslim feminism and institutional racism in New Zealand. What are some misconceptions that people have about Muslim women and oppression? How can we continue to support our Muslim communities following the Christchurch terror attacks? And why did nobody heed the warnings from Muslim women for years? All that, and more hilarious uses for the hijab than you ever thought possible. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
