What is Arab fishing, the white gaze or Islamic feminism? Definitions with the Jins podcast

This Ramadan, we invite you to immerse yourself in the exciting world of intersectional feminism. Jins has invested this world in a podcast dedicated to the sexuality of Arabs and/or Muslims. We interviewed Jins, who helped us decipher concepts useful for deconstructing the stereotypes created by the overlap between racism, sexism and homophobia.

The podcast project is simple: let identities shine. Through discussions with his guests, Jins intends to do so “deconstruct stereotypes, to allow everyone to better build their identity, to better understand Islam and to better accept their sexuality”.

If Jins addresses daily issues in which many listeners, Arabs, North Africans, Muslims, but also allies, will recognize themselves, the podcast gives pride of place to the vocabulary of activists.

Jins agreed to give us an interview, in which he introduced us to the key words useful for laying the foundations of Islamic feminism.

What does it mean Arabian fishing ? Which is white gauze ? And the intersectional feminism ? And what does it mean in Arabic? “La Hchouma” ? Jins answered all these questions in this video.
