on the veil, Foucault, sexuality, women's liberation & revolution - Parts 1 & 2

from the Q&A in Berkeley, California on March 15, 2010. This is from Sunsara's national speaking tour, "From the Burkha to the Thong: Everything Must, and Can, Change -- WE NEED TOTAL REVOLUTION!"

In this exchange, Taylor is challenged by a Muslim student who wears the veil voluntarily. Taylor argues against cultural relativism and individualism in her response and gets into the origins of women's oppression and why communist revolution holds the potential for women's liberation and challenges everyone in the audience to be a part of the struggle for human emancipation.

Upcoming tour dates at UCLA on April 8, 2010, University of Hawaii on April 13, 2010 and more TBA.
