I’m asking you to vote for a true global feminist revolution
My Oxford Union talk is live. What a great honour it was. I wanted to use the opportunity to not only address the debate but to also make a case for a conscientious and critically conscious global feminism that “smashes the patriarchy”. I admit that it felt good to speak about smashing the patriarchy as well as about imperialism in an institution like the Oxford Union which, as a lover of ideas and knowledge I respect and cherish, but which also has been historically and traditionally patriarchal and imperialist. The beauty of the times we live in.

I’ve been listed alongside Michelle Obama and Angelina Jolie as one of “twelve women changing the world” by ELLE and my work has been used as a case study at universities around the world.
