10:32 am
and i think i i do understand about the lifelong state of a basement that can result from extended abuse from childhood on what about the trauma she talked about you've been quoted as dismissing some of the trauma that for example rape victims of have experienced absolutely not true the idea of them suffering p.t.s.d. for example oh listen when somebody tells me that you're more likely to suffer p.t.s.d. as a rape victim then you are as a veteran of foreign wars something's gone seriously wrong in your you say that in your position as a leading psychologist now i say that in my position is the right thing. i mean every rape victim would certainly be what have you was a horrible it does not you know you don't minute for all women what i mean there have been studies done just. says p.t.s.d. is associated consistently with sexual violence in the most traumatic event you know more than the w.h.o. . yes i think so in the. middle so we will think about it the first thing that
10:33 am
happens to you as a rape victim is you get told that this is ruined your life this you will never get i want to learn how to make sure it's not what happens you know that before you even have a look at well here's a couple here's a here's a study in the us study that in the first two to three hours after an assault before people even going to the police ninety six percent of victims experience physical shaking trembling in shock you know there that it happened if you were run over by a bike. really and truly this is you're saying this is getting silly. and being run over by a bike and on the silly one note simply turning over the turning into something that happens every day we've already talked about the fact that rape is universal right because in practically every house and in the land but non-consensual sex is everywhere and then you want to say and it will drive you mad you'll have to go by to be doing a reprint is going to hand over a face i'm sorry just the idea that the idea that when you are when you experience
10:34 am
right the first thing you're told is that you're meant to be traumatized for life as somebody who has also been raped with the first thing i was told when i went to try and talk to someone about it was that i was a liar and you know nothing it happened to me and i swallowed that for ten years even though you know i experienced pain and trauma and that's what these movements are trying to they're trying to actually make violence and trauma visible and dean normalize them because it's not just the case that rape is universal it's that we think it's ok we think that these behaviors are normal and we put the blame on the shame on our women when we should be putting all men i agree with you not see that i agree with this group let's go back to the audience the lady. in regards to your feminism how would you address someone who can simply say down i saw women who were oppressed. ability sexuality in fear of losing a job. or in a vulnerable situation like a refugee camp anything like that in the principles of your feminism feminism
10:35 am
that's supposed to be an income the scene field of study and income seem way of living i'm not entirely sure that i quite understand the context of that i mean i understand what you're saying i'm saying people slapping it down dealing with it instantly not being victims some people are not in the same situation don't have the same privilege what i was actually talking about when that particular statement had a context was the fact made who has brought up these cases. after two as much as twenty years when the statute of limitations means that there can be no criminal prosecution now when it comes to intersectionality there's not a lot that i can say because i am what i am i am a white middle class academic i am not god almighty i don't understand what it's like to belong to a minority except that it's pretty interesting being an australian in england so to grab a contradiction a moment ago you were strapped looting from your own horrific experience to make
10:36 am
sweeping judgement about what women experience of the violence now you're saying well i can only speak for myself when yes ok now a little of the contradiction no i was speaking of myself as a rape victim it may surprise you to learn that i'm not a career or a p.c. i don't spend my entire life as a lot of those phrases of yours upsets a lot of people upset ok it's upsetting ok. maybe here in the lady my name is far too i work with a local charity here in oxford called oxford against cutting ok so you have said in the past that the way that wouldn't of my group treat their genitals is their business are you saying that charities like or should pack our bags and go home and you've also said that you won't even condemn female genital mutilation at all. how does that view fit in with the human rights agenda of saving all children from you and i both know that this is not a simple question there are many different ways of doing cutting and they have
10:37 am
different significance in different communities so we this is not an easy question but what annoys me is that we decide that african women or whoever from whichever community may not do these things to themselves and it is complicated but most people say. the w.h.o. says it's a gross violation of human you better stop. you better stop american women learn english why. and when during a good that's nice what about tree the question is do you condemn it no no you don't you don't really matter to me the way you do lots of cultural practice you know the sort of really. you can never finish a concert going to point that. for a while and i'll start. going to the very prominent operation on the female genitalia in america is the shortening of the layby a menorah it's practically the same operation and it is practiced in great numbers but if we practiced on godless we're talking about yes i do know not to period
10:38 am
because i can think of having generally carried out on someone in a way ok so that's your position of cutting but i don't see a different ok gentlemen in the glasses. you seem to me to be a contrarian so my question is when in particular should we listen to you and perhaps when not so much mentioned transgender issues you don't have to listen to me at all. i don't have to listen to you. there's no can you understand the label of contrarians. no no. you didn't hear. about me to quite flip and i think majors kind of comedic content you said something about. should stop filmmaking because old rather than because of the alleged abuse of his younger daughter i never said ok i'm sure in these big pile of papers there is proof that you did say it but that's final to the contrary it is something that wasn't there
10:39 am
and let me explain something before i explain something can i ask you something past question of because i picked up your book when i was sixteen years old and that was my pathway into feminism and as you see here before me you are just totally incompatible with the theory that i've read it's like surely high up on your agenda as a feminist is just less rape because you're deviating what counts as rape or not instead of having a conversation about what the psycho social basis of rape is why are men raping is a better conversation does that count as i don't know why men or a t. know why men are raping and i don't know which men are right but that's your responsibility as a feminist academic and you have written text that show that huge do know why men are raping you do you understand why there is a male hedge mean edge when you do understand how patriarchy translates into controlling sexual violence your own theory shows that so i just don't understand where you're going from there is not a book of theory i don't know how you work that out what it is it what is it what was it supposed to be a description of life as we lived it in nineteen sixty nine when i wrote that
10:40 am
given you're not going to agree and we're running out of time just let me just do a follow up to get the answer to but i'm asking you to get a sense of disappointment when you hear people who want big farms of yours now feeling disappointed in what you're saying today are never are you to have never asked for or wanted a big fan but with someone asked does it does it bother you at all that people who once agreed with you looked up to you now or not i'm not worried about being disagreed with or was wondering just wondering ok let's go to break it. i'm a huge me too cameron supporter and the reason i supported the campaign was because it was an eye opening campaign for me it made me realise how many women around me had been affected. agree with you that a lot of women in the holy word who have used sexual exploitation to climb up the litter somehow we can the why is strong women like you when you do not support the me two campaign you weaken the war it's to what we really need is you to support
10:41 am
the young women in this campaign in let us move ahead in this fight i'm sorry to be crabby about this but when furhman tells me that harvey weinstein who was clearly a good friend pushed her down somewhere and then tried to expose himself and generally gives the account that she was in danger but she escaped are and i think he tried to expose himself what stopped them. how does he go to the toilet if you can't work out how to expose him so why did she why did she give us this narrative what does it mean he knew we were going to be going to this it was over go on but there are plenty of actresses and normal actresses his assistant a marketing effective advocate all of whom were his quote unquote whatever you want to call it you say victims of the business survivors here do not see what you're doing but you don't know the reason the reason for naming them is that they could finance the whole thing so far i've been told that there are civil suits being
10:42 am
brought but i haven't found them and i do nothing but look for your dismissive tone i think that bothers people and then laurie and we have to finish very briefly i just i don't think we younger feminists do need germy to validate and sanctify what they're doing it's ok for you to be appalled and disappointed i personally am glad that the shaking things up ideological diversity is great we all need it i think we're a little bit too prone to worrying so really a range of brewarrina very briefly final word for it i'm all for ideological diversity but the question is how is is somebody who is still regarded by many is an icon supposed to support you know young women in their current struggle i think the answer has to be either by getting behind it and showing solidarity in a critical way or by getting out of the way because this is a distraction i seriously when i get an invite myself here tonight and i tell you something else if there's anything i don't want to be it's an icon i grew up with
10:43 am
holy pictures and i don't want to be one and i've never pretended to be one i'm not speaking on women's behalf i'm trying to talk sense especially in an environment where we seem to be talking a lot of sloganising nonce meaning needs to come in briefly that's wonderful that you don't want to position yourself as an icon but you are to very many women so at least give hope that i believe is what i mean could you not just look at me too for what it is rather than have your single narrative that it's about thurman and meryl streep mean. has been translated to chinese did ish arabic finnish you have women in nigeria kenya india brazil galvanizing and organizing and using me to i was at the e.u. parliament where hundreds of feminists took over the e.u. parliament on the back end of me to speak about women gaining power in europe so can you at least acknowledge that there's all this other stuff going on it's not just hollywood celebrities speaking about taking cocaine with harvey weinstein and
10:44 am
wait till something happens i mean suddenly they're actually very well made to means nothing but why be so negative you say sorry to be crabby why be so crabby because i want to be crabby i can be as crappy as i like even i would strike you even if it's on helpful i don't have facilities so for i'm one person i'm being told to help all the women of the world or something or or say things that will be accepted by everybody let me ask this last question on me too lori said at the start you know we've only been six months seven months and you keep saying let's see what happens do you have any regrets about how you've handled it at all i don't do regrets. what you call a person who has no regrets did probably but. because of your undoing your positions on me to last question and he showed if they suddenly pull the rabbit out of their head if they actually manage to bring a case that they can actually win but i don't think they're going to let my feeling
10:45 am
but when they do i'll cheer on the very negative mood. thanks for joining me on head to head and thank . you. national bulletins the debate on migration is polarized into two strident positions on close to madness how do you define an indigenous brits who do they benefit isn't this more about living with defense and you and visas that and who do they contain. the right to live anywhere in the world have every right to leave their country. goes head to head with a cold coming on al-jazeera. on

is a political analyst and author and he says the nation state all sets precedence at a constitutional level. the nation state law. elevates the question of discrimination inside israel to constitutional status it makes it a basic law which means israeli practices that used to discriminate now have legal status and all the policies of daisychain regarding land housing right of return status of jerusalem a whole range of different rights that affect non jews in the jewish state now will be institutionally discriminated against israel already has laws on the books like it has sixty four laws on the books that discriminate with some of these are on their face value actually discriminating others are more in direct so. but the elevation of the status to constitutional status is this is fundamentally

different it means that this becomes the animists behind the israeli project and this is done in the name of the jewish majority the palestinians both palestinians citizens of the state of israel but also palestinians in the occupied territories the jewish settlement is considered a national value only jews have the right for national self-determination and becomes an exclusive right only jews have the right to bring their to come come and gain citizenship one person refugees must remain outside so israel is being very clear about ensuring that this law is about ensuring israel means the state of the jewish people around the world not the the state of its citizens and in fact they are the people who are pushing this law being very explicit about that that israel will not be the state of its citizens. a u.n. delegation reformations with hamas officials there visit as part of ongoing efforts to deescalate tensions with israel meanwhile funerals were held for the three palestinians have
