Courage takes many forms. For some it’s telling our truths and denying those who tell us to shut up. For others, it’s organizing to resist the densest military occupation in the world.
This Labor Day, September 2, on KPFA Women’s Magazine, Preeti Shekar and Tara Dorabji speak with scholar Athar Zia, author of the book They Gave Us Blood: Normalcy, Sacrifice, and Terror in Kashmir, and Menaja Jehan, a local organizer with Stand with Kashmir, about how women are organizing to oppose the Indian military occupation in Kashmir in the wake of the Indian government’s surprise announcement rescinding the autonomy of the contested Muslim majority region.
Then Kate Raphael speaks with publisher, author and podcaster Brooke Warner about how women are finding new ways to make ourselves heard. Brooke’s new book is Write On, Sisters! Voice, Courage and Claiming Your Place at the Table.
