    Salam, I agree with Dr. Ghilan about most of this. one thing though, not all feminist have this position. Frankly, this pushing of feminism as its most extreme parts is one of the things feminists fight against. Feminism is about equality and equity for women in society, let’s deal with the real problems women deal with first.

    What was the name of the book that Dr.Ghilan mentions at the start of the podcast? It had to do with how the translation of philosophical works into other languages resulted in a complete distortion of the original.
