Listen To and Share Political Is Personal Podcast Episode 8 — MENA Feminisms Across Generations

We invite you to listen to a new episode of “Political is Personal” podcast produced by WILPF MENA programme. In this episode entitled “MENA Feminisms Across Generations”, we talk to three inspiring feminists from different generations about their experiences and views on feminism in the region.

From Palestine to Libya and Yemen, our guests share their ideas on the similarities and differences between feminists of the past, present, and future. How do emerging feminists view the older generations? Do pioneering feminists believe that feminism has become easier in our era? And how do different generations deal with some sensitive issues that have emerged recently in feminism, such as homosexuality and abortion?

Join us in this fun and exciting episode to listen to an honest and bold conversation between:

Hooreya Mashoor: founding member of the National Accord Movement and a member of the advisory team for the UN Envoy’s Office in Yemen

Asma Khalifa: Libyan activist and researcher, working in the field of human rights, women’s rights and youth empowerment

Lian Derini: Community organiser at Kyan, and coordinator of the feminist coalition “FADA- Palestinian Women Against Violence”

Bullying is any abusive practice or behaviour directed by an individual or group of individuals towards another individual or group. Bullying can be considered a form of harassment that is more frequent and systematic. It aims not only to violate the receiving party, but also to belittle them. Bullying is characterised by being targeted at a person or group of people, while harassment need not be targeted.


Harassment/Taharrush is a group of unwanted abusive practices that are threatening to the recipient by their very nature. Unlike bullying, harassment need not be targeted. It may take place directly or indirectly, so that it creates an atmosphere of distress, heaviness, and insecurity.


Assault is any actual or attempted aggressive act that deliberately violates or threatens the physical space of an individual or group. It is often believed that assault is limited to direct physical violations only, but as a concept it also includes indirect infringement on personal space.


Exploitation occurs when a person or group of people uses their power, status, or positionality for personal benefit through the use of force, duress, violence, coercion, deceit, or trickery that causes direct or indirect harm to another person or group of people, or to public interest.
