Paola Salwan Daher is the Senior Global Advocacy Adviser at the Center for Reproductive Rights and a Marxist feminist from the Lebanese diaspora. She is interested in feminist movement building, embodying transnational solidarity, rethinking love and relationships, poetry, writing, tattoos, books, watching her children grow and the general witchery of life.
This episode consists of two parts because I had so many questions and Paola so much knowledge to share and she made sure nothing was left unsaid.
We speak about feminism, feminist solidarity, Lebanon, hummus and its appropriation, hammam radio, a feminist participatory radio Paola co-founded with her comrades and friends. We speak about tattoos and grief.
Paola is fierce and loving. And someone I truly admire. Enjoy listening to the first part of our conversation and when you finish listening check out Hammam radio and Paola's blog myrrh and mint @ https://myrrhandmint.wordpress.com/

At Salt The Podcast my guests and I contest and deconstruct narratives, and passionately recreate with the aim to change systems and perceptions. We want to elevate a generation that is feminist, antiracist and empathetic. Our conversations flow into each other and leave room for the unexpected. Salt is love, community, solidarity, a collective, healing, creating. It is intersectional, full of stories, movement and change. It insists, evolves and transforms. It is a commitment.
