How To Spot A Feminist

Two fun-loving hijabi women ask the big questions.
by Adam Grannick for the Moral Courage Project“If someone is dressed a certain way, they are representing to the world that they adhere to a certain set of beliefs.” Comedians and actors Radhika Vaz and Nadia Manzoor are shattering this assumption with their new video, How To Spot A Feminist.Manzoor and Vaz play two hijabi women, Shugufta and Fatima (Shugs and Fats), who are struggling to make hipster Brooklyn their home. Vaz and Manzoor, who are both sketch comedians and writers, decided to launch Shugs and Fats as a web series together. “We had amazing creative chemistry and we had to work together,” they said. “We felt doing it with our clothes on was the best way.”They venture into new territory in this short video, produced in collaboration with Moral Courage TV, where they’re “looking for life’s answers in all the wrong places.”

The two women ask passersby to evaluate the feminist leanings of popular figures such as Kim Kardashian, and then turn the questions toward themselves. They were surprised at the answers they received when they pushed further and asked, “do we look like feminists?”

Check out their hilarious new video below, question your assumptions, and pass it on!

  7. These ladies are awesome. Nothing like opening a conversation on something no-one else wants to talk about for fear of hurting feeling. These gals do a bang up job. Hilarious. 😀

  8. I so enjoyed this. Very funny indeed. 😃
