Mind Shift: Worldwide Feminine Revolution (October 2013)

Season 1, Episode 6
Available worldwide

Many patriarchal systems that dominate the world’s cultures not only turn a blind eye toward violence against women, they may even encourage it. Things are beginning to change as communities are uniting to challenge the paradigms that promote misogyny. Playwright Eve Ensler and activist Jerin Arifa join Daniel Pinchbeck to share their ideas for empowering individuals and communities to develop cultural norms that discourage all forms of abuse in this interview originally webcast October 22, 2013.

To highlight this, Eve Ensler explains how the accidental success of The Vagina Monologues led her to develop programs that give women everywhere a voice to express their suffering. When Jerin Arifa joins the conversation, they discuss how patriarchies misconstrue the role of women in Islam for Muslims and non-Muslims, alike. Together they explain how they are working to unite the world’s communities and end the epidemic of violence against women.

Update: Jerin Arifa is on the National NOW Board of Directors and President of NOW’s First Virtual Chapter Young Feminists & Allies (YFA),

I really enjoyed what was said, and found it very good and funny, I am just sorry I could not understand some of what was said.

First these are the strangest comments I have seen on this network. Clearly the topics touch some tender spots - and credit to the program for tackling relevant issues with amazing guests. I came to leave this comment: Is Daniel aware of how many times he cut off women who were there to explicitly address the issues of women and voice/being heard/not being disregarded. Please watch again and see. Thanks.

I have 2/3 of my life supporting three women while going deeply into credit card debt not of my own making.
And what is meant by the patriarchy anyway when women are represented at all levels of business and goverment?

I did not understand clearly how Islam is empowering women.

The masculinity that causes the need for "power over others" isn't actually masculinity, it's weakness and confusion.

Let us see the emergence of the divine masculine as the courage to be gentle. Masculinity supports ALL beings with love and wisdom.

No right was ever given to any being by a book.

Never trust a spiritual teacher who can't dance.

i only wish Eve had the knowledge of cannabis oil and how it could have killed her cancer without harming her.
