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 is part two of our conversation because I had so many questions and Paola so much knowledge to share and she made sure nothing was left unsaid.
In part II we speak about writing as a political act, the importance of women writers, motherhood, reproductive labour, reproductive rights, hear about Paola's book recommendation, her Salt and why she does not want to inspire anyone.
Paola is fierce and loving. And someone I truly admire. Enjoy listening to the second part of our conversation
Host: Stella Saliari
At Salt The Podcast my guests and I c ontest 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.
