''I am here to confuse you'' - Mona Eltahawy

TED Archive 7 Mar 2017

Mona Eltahawy said: “I am a Muslim, I am a feminist and I am here to confuse you” are the powerful words columnist Mona Eltahawy begins with. In this sharp talk, she discusses the personal, religious and political stances she has taken and how their implications are often assumed to contradict each other. Mona uses this confusion, she says, as a way to shift perspectives and fight misogyny.
