Antoinette Lattouf was only a teenager when her father gave her some advice. Drop out of school, get a job and start a family, because “nobody would marry a woman who was too smart and had too many opinions”. He only wanted the best for her, as a refugee from Lebanon, but luckily, Antoinette ignored him.
Now, Antoinette is one of the most important voices in Australian media. And what she has to say about racism, tokenism vs inclusion, and Black Lives Matter, is essential listening.
This is No Filter with Antoinette Lattouf.
