The Seven Necessary SIns for Women and Girls

When All Women Have Power

'It is the job of a revolution to shock, to provoke, and to upset, not to behave or to be polite.' MONA ELTAHAWY'

How is it that we have laid bodies down in streets, challenged patriarchy in courts, bled for fair wages, and still inequalities persist?' TRESSIE MCMILLAN COTTOM

'We like our heroines to be courageous, but we don't want them to be messy. We want them to confront patriarchy, but we don't want them to have lovers half their age. We praise women for surviving abuse and torture, but when the resultant trauma and suffering make them angry and volatile, we fear and deride them.' SISONKE MSIMANG

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.

This panel is chaired by Santilla Chingaipe.
