Hosted by Ariana Manov, Celina Alvarez & Monique Meza….
Two segments from the ’Best of FemMag’!
Award winning Slam Poet Roxy Azari takes us into Muslim women’s lives “Behind the Veil” in Turkey, Morrocco, France, India, Indonesia, and the United Arab Emirates and shares vast interpretations and symbolizations of veiling/unveiling. She’ll explore how the controversy impairs our understanding and veils our own eyes preventing us from seeing women’s activism and political involvement. And Roxy uses her voice as a Slam Poet to demand social change nationally and internationally.
And, writer and activist, Jennifer Baumgardner talks to us about her new book ’F’em! Goo Goo Gaga and Some Thoughts on Balls‘. A compilation of some her best thought provoking essays. Hear her talk about her evolution as a feminist and how she carved a space for third wave feminism to progress. We talk classics every self-identifying feminist should read, and even address the idea of a possible fourth wave feminism currently taking shape.
THIS is what feminism sounds like - DON’T MISS A THING!
