Hoda Katebi

Hoda Katebi is a Chicago-based angry daughter of Muslim-Iranian immigrants. She is the voice behind JooJoo Azad, the radical, political fashion online publication hailed from BBC to VOGUE to the New York Times, and author of the book Tehran Streetstyle, the first-ever in-print documentation and celebration of illegal fashion in Iran. Offline, Hoda is an abolitionist and community organizer, part of campaigns to end surveillance programs and police militarization. She is also developing a sewing co-operative of refugee and low-income immigrant women in Chicago. Most recently, Hoda has launched #BecauseWeveRead, an Instagram-based radical, international book club with meet-ups in 30+ cities around the world, working to uplift and celebrate stories of those whose voices are systemically silenced and engage in community organizing work and campaigns.

She graduated from the University of Chicago in 2016 where her research focused on intersections of gender, resistance, feminism, & the state in Iran, and will be starting law school in the fall of 2019. She runs on saffron ice cream & colonizer tears.
