LIVE: What I did when the British media made our kind invisible - British Asian feminist Sangeeta Pillai Lander Mon, 2018-01-15 23:25
“I believe there is little or nothing in mainstream British media about British Asian women. And I’d like the media to talk about us beyond honour killings and bride burning. Because you see, we’re awesome and sexy, and all sorts of other wonderful things.” – Sangeeta Lander Pillai talks to SOAS Radio about her upcoming erotic novel Soul Sutras, her popular blog, and her project Masala Monologues that adapts Eve Ensler’s masterpiece, The Vagina Monologues, to archive unique and under-represented British Asian experiences. Collaborating with similarly positioned women in London by creating theatre pieces, digital audio-visual artworks, exhibitions, and TV scripts, Sangeeta’s movement has already begun.
