FEMINISM: Jameela Jamil - Misogyny, Media and Mistakes

Exactly. With Florence Given

This week Floss kicks off her second mini-series on FEMINISM with the icon that is Jameela Jamil. Jameela is an actress and activist- you’ll know her from playing Tahani Al-Jamil in Netflix’s The Good Place, her incredible platform and podcast I Weigh, and SLAMMING Piers Morgan on Twitter (not really. She’s not a UFC fighter).  Jameela and Floss discuss women being double agents for the patriarchy, being a woman in the public eye and how the media fuels misogyny. They also explore the trap door that is the pedestal, the inaccessibility of activism in the social justice space and the great importance of forgiveness in accountability. Jameela also gives some sage advice on life after being cancelled and helps Floss answer some of your questions- after giving some juicy details about her relationship with the Kardashians! (That last bit is an exaggeration and an excellent example of the kind of click-bait Floss and Jameela want you to watch out for.)

Jameela Jamil | On Adversity, Celebrity and Activism [BEST OF]

Good Life Project

My guest today, Jameela Jamil, was a household name in the UK for years. Hosting shows on T4 and BBC Radio 1 before launching into the spotlight in the US, playing Tahani on the acclaimed TV show, The Good Place, and then hosting TBS late-night game show That Misery Index judging voguing reality competition show Legendary. And along the way, she has been incredibly intentional about leveraging her notoriety for social good launching the advocacy platform I Weigh and the podcast of the same name and she's on a quest to really bring together and amplify the voices of change-makers and promote equity and dignity. And for her, it's also personal. Growing up the daughter of Indian and Pakistani parents, she was often bullied, an experience made tougher after being diagnosed with a condition that affects her body's connective tissue and often causes chronic pain. And through her teens, she endured even more trauma. Became anorexic, and then at a car accident that caused a spinal injury that would profoundly change her relationship with her body. And finding her way eventually into the world of TV and radio in the UK, she headed to the US at first to write, but found herself in front of the camera, performing on a set with her childhood heroes on network TV. But it was her decision to speak truth to power and become an advocate for equality, inclusivity, and self-determination that has really become the center of who Jameela is and how she shows up in the world, a place she describes as being post shame.

JAMEELA JAMIL: “I’m essentially a memory foam mattress with nipples.”

Manatomy with Danny Wallace & Phil Hilton

We begin our show about men and their bodies - with a woman. This is an open show, and we wanted someone to be open about men. So we asked the brilliant writer and Good Place actor Jameela Jamil about men and their hang-ups, their worries and their triumphs. There’s talk of Dad Bods (Danny likes his), heightism (which Phil’s experienced) and quite a lot of *very* cathartic swearing.You can email us on hello@assemblehere.co.uk, find us on Twitter @assemblehere and if you review us, let us know the thing about your body you’d give five stars!Don’t forget you can subscribe to our twice-weekly newsletter, packed with stories and useful stuff, at assemblehere.co.uk.
