Mona Eltahawy and Laleh Khalili on Street Eve Teasing, Assault, Harassment on Women
Mona Eltahawy is an Egyptian activist, feminist powerhouse, protestor of oppressive regimes and author of Headscarves and Hymen.
Laila Khalili is an Iranian academician who specializes on the politics of the middle-east.
And at the Jaipur Literature Festival 2016, both women answer the same question. Is feminist is social movement, or a serious political one? And if it is indeed serious politics, then what is the serious political impact of feminism?
And the largest question of all - is feminism giving us all the vocabulary and tools to fight ALL forms of oppression?
