The Eastern Connecticut State University Women's Center and Campus Activities Board hosted the Palestinian American comic Maysoon Zayid on 11/4, and I found myself quickly converted to a fan. Zayid held one of the most influential TED Talks ever and was also the first person to preform standup in Israel and Jordan. Zayid also co-founded the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival.
Zayid also has Cerebral Palsy, but isn't a Palsy Comic, she's a comic who just happens to have Palsy.
Forbes calls her one of the global faces of feminism, and they're right, but mostly, she's just hilarious. Zayid serves as a massive inspiration to feminists, and I highly suggest following her on twitter @MaysoonZayid or visiting her website or Facebook page
