- All Saints Centre, Lewes
Written from a unique perspective and packed with personal experiences as well as public examples, Alibhai-Brown addresses the ultimate question of why Muslim women everywhere should refuse the veil.
She argues that veiling conceals abuse and restricts access to sunlight and exercise. It allows women to be shamed for not covering up and has become associated with extremist factions.
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown writes for The Independent. She is winner of the Orwell Prize for journalism. She is a Shia Muslim, born and raised in Uganda, a proud migrant and British Asian citizen.
