Hosted by Celina Alvarez and Lynn Harris Ballen

Meet Nawal El Saadawi – Egyptian novelist, psychiatrist and activist and hear how she’s dealt with censorship, imprisonment and exile; why her radical books are being read again; & why she’s here for the upcoming “Feminisms & Intersectionalities” Conference at UC Riverside. Academy Award winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll gives us the answer to Who Does She Think She Is? …. that’s her documentary about five fierce women who refuse to choose between mothering and making their art. And hear from Judy Vaughn from Alexandria House, a neighborhood center and home for women & children finding stability after the trauma of homelessness.
