FM March 30: PCC Feminists/Gender & Justice / Emma’s Revolution

Hosted by: Lynn Harris Ballen and Celina Alvarez.

Hear highlights from the Feminist Coming Out Day event, recorded live at Pasadena City College with community panelists and a student audience.

Then, how does the criminal justice system impact the lives of girls, women and children? We’ll find out when Allie Fernandez, updates us on the upcoming Claremont Graduate University conference on Gender (Applied Women’s Studies Bradshaw Conference 2011) sharing highlights of the conference panels and discussions. Plus a focus on women and the criminal justice system panelists with the screening of Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story – a young woman sentenced to life for a murder she committed as a teen.

And we hear from singing duo Emma’s Revolution – part folk, part pop, two activist songwriters – a musical uprising of truth and hope, “like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars”.

Plus a taste of Las Ramonas Gone Wild! – a laugh out loud show, con risas y dignidad.

That’s all coming up on Wednesday on Feminist Magazine at 7pm. This is what Feminism sounds like!
