In Tea with Mama Cash, feminisms and other radical politics will get an airing and a welcome reception – to create, debate, reimagine, of course problematize, and also just be. Your hosts Zohra Moosa and Happy Mwende Kinyili share their experience, perspective and opinions based on their experience supporting feminist activism worldwide.⁣

Because feminist activism works!⁣

Mama Cash was conceived around a kitchen table in Amsterdam in 1983. Since then, we have grown from a group of five feminist activists into an international fund that supports women’s, girls’ and trans and intersex people’s movements around the world. More info at www.mamacash.org

    Episode sixteen: Let's dance ft. Strictly Silk

    Episode sixteen: Let's dance ft. Strictly Silk

    As anarchist activist Emma Goldman (1865-1940) said: If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution.

    Conceptualised in Nairobi, Kenya by multidisciplinary arts collective The Nest, Strictly Silk is a party for and by women and non-binary people. And on March 7th, the first international edition of Strictly Silk will take place on at Radio Radio in Amsterdam to kick off the Mama Cash Feminist Festival!

    We took the opportunity to speak to two of its founding members, Njeri Gitungo and Dr. Akati Khasiani, about the relationship between the arts and activism, how and why Strictly Silk got its start, and why women and queer folk reclaiming the dance floor is a feminist act.

    Episode fifteen: Imagining feminist futures

    Episode fifteen: Imagining feminist futures

    The first 2020 episode of Tea with Mama Cash is all about the future! We're talking feminist utopias, dystopias, and what these imagined futures can tell us about the present.

    For this discussion on all things speculative and social justice, Zohra is joined by two very special guests: Hakima Abbas, Co-Executive Director of AWID, and Geeta Misra, Executive Director of CREA.

    Let us know what you think and what you want to hear more about or submit a #feministmishap of your own by getting in touch via our social media - @mamacash on Twitter, @mamacashfund everywhere else - or via tea@mamacash.org.

    Episode fourteen: Sex workers' rights matter

    Episode fourteen: Sex workers' rights matter

    Even within feminist spaces, the regulation of sex work is a contested topic. So for this International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, we invited two sex workers' rights activists to join us on the podcast: Velvet December, Advocacy Coordinator for Dutch sex workers' union PROUD, and Vera Rodriguez, Programme Associate at international fund for sex workers' rights activists the Red Umbrella Fund.

    We unpacked about how sex work intersects with capitalism and patriarchy, recent developments in legislation and activism around the world, and what sex workers themselves want (hint: it's not the Nordic model).

    Episode thirteen: Why climate change is sexist

    Episode thirteen: Why climate change is sexist

    Climate change is one of the most urgent issues of our times, and fortunately it has gained the mainstream attention it deserves. But one important element is missing from the conversation. To create a sustainable future for all, we need to talk about gender and climate change.

    In this episode of Tea with Mama Cash, hosted by our Executive Director Mama Cash and our Programme Officer for Environmental Justice Erika Mandreza Sales, we dive into the sexist impact of climate change, and other hierarchies that influence who is making decisions that affect all of us, and who is most affected.

    We had a chat with FRIDA's co-Executive Directors, Majandra Rodriguez Acha and Nino Ugrekhelidze about stereotypes put on young people, how girls are organising to change the world, and our co-commissioned report published last year about girl-led activism, 'Girls to the Front.'

    Episode eleven: For the people, by the people?

    Episode eleven: For the people, by the people?

    September 15th is the International Day of Democracy. What better time to reflect on what democracy was meant for, how it's playing out on the ground today, and most importantly, what we might want it to be?

    For this episode we invited two guests, who from their respective experiences lend us their feminist perspectives on the matter: Nandini Archer, assistant editor at OpenDemocracy 50.50, and Gina LaFour, volunteer at Stem op een Vrouw. So tune in for the tea on democracy, the rise of far-right movements, and equal representation of women in politics!

    Questions, feedback, or a feminist mishap of your own to share? Find us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, or shoot us an email at tea@mamacash.org!

Brave and personally reflective

Naming the problem with compassion and honesty. A lifeline for feminist and activists. Listening to this podcast was an act of self care. A place for self reflection and accountability that invites a reimagining of the development sector, movement building and development finance

Insightful, fun, feminist

Hosts and guests get real, are smart and delve into all sorts of topics. Love how they keep it light and deeply political at the same time.
