We talk about the limitations of free speech, why boycotts matter, why we should never debate our humanity, the backlash on Social Media and a bunch of really hurt white men and the destruction of the patriarchy. Mona discusses the value of international networks and transnational solidarity amongst activists.
Mariam and Mona also delve into the complex and layered narrative regarding the veiling of muslim women, why this conversation that must be had and should be led only by muslim women and Mona’s opposition to the burka, hijab and the niqab: “I always complicate this idea of choice and agency”.
We also touch lightly on the the so called Immigrant Illuminati conspiracy Dutch pundits seem to think exists: we also have it on the record that Flavia was not responsible for Mona cancelling the lecture. You can stop clogging her DMs now.
