Feminism and Lubna Hussein 04 Sep 2009
Lubna Hussein
Lubna Hussein faces forty lashes for wearing trousers. Should we be doing more?

The Sudanese journalist Lubna Hussein is facing forty lashes for wearing a pair of trousers. Her case has sparked world wide condemnation. She’s due back in court on Monday. But to what extent has her case been ignored by feminists, especially politicians - in Britain?
Jenni is joined by Sally Keeble, Labour MP for Northampton North and member of the Associate Parliamentary Group for Sudan; Susie Mesure, journalist who wrote the article asking if feminists should be doing more and Hilary Wainwright, feminist activist and editor of ‘Red Pepper’ Magazine.
