Mise Fosta & Tobi Lawal

On today's episode, we chat with three womxn who have been forces of instrumental change this year towards equality, raising awareness on sexual abuse in the music scene, educating on issues of racism and highlighting the harsh conditions asylum seekers face in Ireland.

Mise Fosta: Over the past few months, dozens of brave women and victims of abuse have gone public and shared their experience of the ripe misogyny and discrimination that pervades the Irish music scene, particularly the Irish traditional folk scene. Many figures who have for years been applauded as legends of their scene, with murals and events dedicated to them, have been rightly exposed for the abusive misogynists they truly are. Today we have guests Anna Ni Nuallain and Ciara Ní Mhurchú from the collective chat candidly about the process that lead them to start the movement.

Tobi Lawal is a force to be reckoned with on the Irish scene for her activism - especially on her Instagram page 'Wise-Up Wednesday’s segment. She is an LLB & LLM Grad Pre trainee Solicitor who also volunteers with organisations End Direct Provision and MASI – the Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland. MASI is an independent platform for asylum seekers to join together in unity and purpose.
