OGYENDEGYE, KWAHERI, GOODBYE WINNIE! - Season 1 Reflections
"When activists, thinkers, billionaires, and young people come together to fight inequality, there is reason for hope". In conversation with Nabil and Max, Winnie reflects on season one of Equals, and what her highlights have been. She identifies the interview with Beth, activist from the slum of Dandora, as her favourite. She talks about the brilliant ideas put on the table by Beth, and also by Rutger Bregman, historian and Joseph Stiglitz, and how only in America could multimillionaires like Abigail Disney come out saying that it is unpatriotic to avoid tax. She says how inspired she has been by the interviews, singling out the interview with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar as particularly full of hope.
Winnie also reflects on her time as leader of Oxfam, and what progress has been made in the fight against inequality, and what more needs to be done, and challenges us to keep up the fight.
