Sohaila Abdulali at the Open Society Foundation


In an evening of readings and film, author Sohailia Abdulali and the renowned filmmaker Vaishali Sinha will explore how rape culture affects our perceptions of sexual assault, feminism, and power—especially now, in the era of #MeToo.

This event is part of the Open Society Foundations Women’s Rights Program’s Ask a Feminist series, which seeks to inspire a broader conversation about the meaning and practice of intersectional feminism.

Sohaila is author of What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape (Myriad, 2018). Thoughtful, provocative and intelligent, this game-changing book looks at sexual assault and the global discourse on rape from the viewpoint of a survivor, writer, counsellor and activist.
