Journalist, author and activist
The self-proclaimed “leftie-liberal, anti-racist and feminist” argues journalists would “rather write about Beyonce” than hold power to account
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a journalist, author and activist. In this in-depth interview, she asserts that being a proud “leftie-liberal, anti-racist and feminist” makes her more susceptible to online abuse; questions why a “feisty woman of colour” like herself wasn’t invited to comment on Brexit; and condemns the state of the media industry, arguing that newspapers have “dumbed down” and journalists would “rather write about Beyonce” than hold power to account.
