I run a fortnightly feminist podcast called feMENA that examines women’s rights issues in the Middle East and North Africa. The show, which I host and produce, covers subjects such as political participation, prostitution, discriminatory laws and sexual health care. Providing first-person stories and in-depth analysis – exclusively from women in the region – it’s a unique platform to amplify female voices and experiences not normally heard in mainstream media.

Intrigued? The show is currently on hiatus, but you can listen to all past episodes on iTunes, Libysyn or Soundcloud. You can also follow feMENA on Twitter and Facebook to be the first to hear when the show resumes.
