On 25 Aug 2012, 4:00pm: Leslie interviews the most hated woman in Lebanon - Joumana Haddad

‘The Arab woman’ is often considered a homogenous identity. Joumana Haddad’s I Killed Scheherazade is a powerful riposte to hypocrisies regarding free speech, prejudice and womanhood, within and outside Islam and the Middle East.

In what has been billed as one of the highlights of the MWF, Leslie talks to Joumana about sexual politics and being labelled the ‘most hated woman in Lebanon’.
