Nadia Murad: Nobel Peace Prize Winner and Voice for Justice
19 min

In 2014, 19-year-old Nadia Murad experienced first-hand the horrors of genocide when ISIS attacked her Yazidi community in Iraq. Her family was devastated, she was kidnapped and enslaved--but once she escaped she made it her mission to speak out for all survivors of sexual violence and to bring ISIS to justice. For her work she was honored with the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize.

Aja Barber - Catalysing Ethical Fashion Change
A note from Clare: Welcome to Series 5, Share the Podcast Mic. After everything that's happened this year, we wanted to shake things up and share the power of this beautiful platform with some of the BIPOC voices leading the conversation in sustainability and ethical fashion. So after this episode, I'll be passing the Wardrobe Crisis mic onto them. Each will interview a person of their choice.  Your guest hosts are some of the most exciting, dynamic, inspirational voices working in this space today - as are their guests. I couldn't be more grateful to them all for sharing their experiences with us, and being part of this project.  I'm excited to bring you this contextual episode with the brilliant sustainable fashion writer, activist and stylist Aja Barber, before I pass the mic on to her as our very first guest host next week. It's all up discussion today: from allyship (when brands get it wrong & how to get it right) to fashion billionaires; white fragility, the dreaded Karens, and coddling vs. discomfort. We talk about how the system is rigged but we have the power to change it. Aja's vision for a sustainable fashion future? Press play to find out. Find us at Aja's on Instagram here. Follow her Patreon here. Can you help us spread the word about this series?
