Video: Comedian and Diversity Speaker Negin Farsad on Moral Courage

Social justice comedian Negin Farsad uses humor to talk about serious issues. In a video for the Moral Courage project, Farsad—who is a TED Fellow and the director of comedy documentary The Muslims are Coming!—takes on gender issues, sex, and women's equality in the Muslim community:

I want to be a part of the culture that says it’s okay for women to speak their minds. And it’s okay for women to speak their minds in exactly the same way we’re used to men speaking their minds.

In her talks, Farsad brings real world activist comedy experience to an engaging and hilarious look at issues like Islamophobia, immigrant rights, and women's sexuality. To book Negin Farsad as a speaker for your next event, contact The Lavin Agency.
