Women’s Activism in the Middle East


The third episode of the Berlin Mideast Podcast examines the issue of gender and women’s activism in the Middle East. It particularly looks at the specific case of activism against the mandatory hijab imposed by the Islamic Republic after the 1979 Iranian Revolution, women’s activism in the region more broadly, and asks whether Western foreign policy could advance the cause of women’s rights in the Middle East. Our guests are: Prof. Nadje Al-Ali, a renowned gender studies scholar from Brown University, and Golineh Atai, an award-winning Middle East correspondent and author of 'Iran - Freedom is female' (in German). Interviewed by the podcast hosts Ali Fathollah-Nejad and Marie Sina.
