Featuring Deepa Kumar, associate professor of media studies and Middle Eastern studies at Rutgers University and author of Islamophobia and the politics of empire.

One of the most potent justifications for the invasion of Afghanistan was the claim that military victory over the Taliban would liberate Afghan women.

It was a lie--or as Afghan feminist Malalai Joya writes, “it was dust in the eyes of the world.”

Yet, even as Joya and others have punctured this justification for imperial policy, it continues to hold sway.

Join a discussion about the historical roots of imperial feminism and how to build a global movement for genuine women's liberation.
