"... a strange and wonderful exhibition" - The New York Times

Modern-Day Antigones

Co-presented by LIVE from the NYPL and the Onassis Cultural Center New York

The original Antigone may be from antiquity, but our current era abounds with women fighting unabashedly for what they believe. To celebrate these heroes, the Onassis Cultural Center New York and LIVE from the NYPL invite Mona Eltahawy to the stage. A journalist, feminist, and author of Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution, Eltahawy is a force to be reckoned with and an embodiment of this spirit. She is joined by yet another fierce and powerful author and journalist, Yasmine El Rashidi.
