Mona Eltahawy: “I Want Patriarchy to Fear Feminism”

As journalists fight for their freedom and safety around the world, that same fight continues for women. Mona Eltahawy is an Egyptian American journalist and activist, and a pioneer of #MosqueMeToo, which brought the #MeToo movement to the Muslim world. She joins Michel Martin to explain her book “The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls,” which calls for a radical challenge to the status quo.
