Female Fear Factory: The Podcast is inspired by the ground-breaking book, Female Fear Factory: Unravelling Patriarchy’s Cultures of Violence by award-winning author and renowned feminist scholar, Professor Pumla Dineo Gqola. The Female Fear Factory speaks to the different ways in which the patriarchy produces fear in people socialised as female globally.
Through first-hand stories, women, and non-binary people talk about their experience of fear, how it is nurtured within them, how it has shaped their lives, and how they are breaking free from it.
For this podcast series, we have put together a line-up of diverse personalities, professions, and nationalities from South Africa to Sri Lanka, India to Iran and learn the many ways that the patriarchal fear factory manifests across culture, generation, religion, and location… We hear from the author herself, Pumla Dineo Gqola, Chitra Nagarajan, Natalia Molebatsi and many more.
