The Tyranny Of Chill with Amani Al-Khatahtbeh

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler co-host alongside Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, founder of MuslimGirl.com and author of a new book, Muslim Girl: A Coming Of Age. We kick off with a discussion of Amani's work smashing the stereotypes about Muslim women in society, then talk about the psychological hoops people are jumping through to keep supporting Trump and discrediting women. We also dig into Rose McGowan's callout of Hollywood's rape culture and wonder whether famous women have a responsibility to speak out about this year's election, and answer a Lady Problem from a college student struggling with the tyranny of chill.
