Jan 26 on FM: Interrupting Colonialism & Yes Means Yes

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen and Ariana Manov.

Joining us is Gina Athena Ulysse, Associate professor in the departments of anthropology, African American Studies and feminist, gender, and sexuality studies at Wesleyan University. Ulysse, returning from a recent visit to her home country Haiti, discusses with us the conditions for women in Haiti and what they are doing to rise from the dust of the earthquake- or goudougoudou-as Haitians dubbed it, mimicking the rumbling sound the ground made at 4:53:10 p.m., January 12, 2010. Gina Athena Ulysse is featured in the winter 2011 edition of Ms Magazine.

And… what’s going on when a major Feminist starts to sound like a rape apologist, and Consent is reduced to a ‘light switch’? Jaclyn Friedman - founder of WAM (Women, Action & the Media) & co-editor of Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and A World Without Rape - joins us to sort it all out, discussing the Assange/Wikileaks sexual assault charges…. and her debate with Naomi Wolf on Democracy Now.
