Too liberated, too frank, too woman, too “whore”?

Exiled Moroccan actress Loubna Abidar, vilified and assaulted for playing a local prostitute in the award-winning film Much Loved, refuses to be silenced by fatwas, online death threats and violence.

A refugee in France since her brutal beating on the streets of Casablanca last November, the 31 year-old activist — who still bears the visible scars of abuse on her face and body — has responded to persecution and hate with defiance, courage and truth-telling. In a searing autobiography called La Dangereuse (The Dangerous Woman) based on interviews with senior Le Monde journalist Marion Van Renterghem — Abidar tells her extraordinary story of overcoming poverty, exclusion and physical and sexual attacks by her father to become one of the most acclaimed young actresses and feminist voices to emerge from North Africa in years.
