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.
