Tahrir Square through Feminist eyes: a reading list from Yasmin El-Rifae


View Linked Books

Journalist and writer Yasmin El-Rifae was one of the organisers behnd Opantish—Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment - during Egypt's revolution. The group set out to protect women against sexual violence on Tahrir Square. Her book Radius, explores the world of the people commited to that work, and the revolution from a feminist perspective.

We're overjoyed to be hosting Yasmin at the shop for a conversation about Radius on March 16th.

In advance of the event, we asked Yasmin to list some of the books that informed the writing of Radius, and her thinking about feminism and revolution more broadly. You'll find that list below.

Tickets for what promises to be an incredibly special event can be found HERE.
