... After the considerable interest in the show, I began working on the BBC documentary Islam, Women and Me, which was screened earlier this week. The question at the heart of the film was whether it is possible to be a strong, independent woman and a good Muslim. Muslim women are undeniably the most spoken-for group in the world. It seems that society is so busy ventriloquising for this silenced and allegedly oppressed minority group, it denies them an actual platform where they can speak for themselves. That was why the show was so important. ...More ventriloquisting for the silenced and allegedly oppressed minority group (wouldn't silencing them and ventriloquisting for them constitute oppression - or is that just another allegation to reinforce alleged oppression?) at The National
Ventriloquisting is perfect for comedians who can't stop laughing about their own jokes.
