Mona Eltahawy, Tressie McMillan Cottom & Sisonke Msimang: When All Women Have Power

Being nice won’t create the rebellions that will finally give women control of their destinies. Mona Eltahawy, Tressie McMillan Cottom and Sisonke Msimang tell us how we can change the world and bring justice within reach for women everywhere.

Just because people look like you, doesn’t mean they will stand in your interest.

Sisonke Msimang

I am a very profane woman, and I am deliberately and politically profane because violence and poverty and capitalism and racism and transphobia are the real profanity and not the fact that I say ‘fuck’.

Mona Eltahawy

We always talk about these women who have no voice, but I don’t know voiceless women.  We are writing books. We are speaking and we are putting ourselves often in great danger by doing so.
