Hina Rabbani Khar: Woman in power vs misogyny
January 17, 2013 | Duration: 13 min, 00 sec
On The Social Network, we discuss the social media reaction to Pakistan Foreign Affairs Minister, Hina Rabbani Khar. The comments went beyond mere outrage and anger at her 'warmongering' comments to humour, and misogynistic comments about her youth, her looks, and of course, her famous Birkin! We are joined in the studio by Sunalini Kumar, assistant professor at the Lady Sri Ram College and a blogger with Kafila, and Krishna, founder of The Unreal Times. We are also joined on webcam by Maheen Khan, one of the designers for the minister, and by Ali Aftaab Saeed, lead vocalist of the Beghairat Brigade.
