s2 e13 — ARUNDHATI KATJU and KANDAKE AMANIRENAS: the lawyer and the warrior Notorious Women

    • Comedy

This week, Miriam covers the recent court and LGBTQ+ legislative victories of lawyer Arundhati Katju; and Lavetta covers the extraordinary reign of Kushite Queen, Kandake Amanirenas, and her victory against the Romans.
-----
In this episode, Miriam introduces lawyer Arundhati Katju (Indian, born 1940) and the hosts explore her fight for LGBTQ+ rights in India, particularly in the decriminalization of consensual same-sex relationships, as a significant step towards equality and individual liberties. Next, Lavetta introduces warrior queen Kandake Amanirenas (Kushite, 57–10 BCE), who was a powerful ruler who successfully defended her kingdom against the Roman Empire and left a lasting legacy. Lavetta delves into the phenomenon of whitewashing of African history in the case of ancient Egypt versus the ancient kingdom of Kush — where Egyptians have historically been considered and immortalized as light-skinned — that has led to the erasure of significant contributions and achievements by black African civilizations.
