But clinging too hard to your identity can lead to an emphasis on what makes us different, rather than what we all might have in common. In a conversation at All About Women 2019 with broadcaster Jan Fran, stylist and cultural commentator Ayishat Akanbi considers the radical power of kindness. Together they discuss the limits of identity, the gendered nature of image, and how to transcend the superficial to form meaningful connections. Watch Ayishat and Fran on Youtube

Activism, protest and feminism in China | All About Women

On the eve of International Women’s Day in 2015, five activists were arrested in China for handing out stickers about sexual harassment. They were jailed for 37 days. These young feminist activists bring a message of resistance to the traditional role of wife and mother, posing a threat to the Communist Party's vision of family as foundation of political stability. Journalist and scholar Leta Hong Fincher spoke with Fauziah Ibrahim in an electric session on why feminism poses the greatest threat to China’s authoritarian regime today. Watch this talk on Youtube
