    I’ve gone back to school and formed an org called JAGed (Justice and Gender Education) at CSU Long Beach. Our group not only started the group, but now have a monthly printed Zine and online Blog, we’re on social media and have our own radio show on KBeach.org. To support Women Made Media is really important, so we can support each other in pursuing our dreams, careers and stop the War Against Women. I want to thank Ashley Judd for her continued support of women and media. I listen to Feminist Magazine on KPFK and they are changing how people think about women and talk radio.
