Feb 5 on FM: Resistance behind bars, Black Women pioneers & One Billion Rising

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen, Sammy Lyon and Celina Alvarez :
Chinese-American writer, photographer, mother and author Victoria Law has a whole lot to say about incarcerated women. Her book ‘Resistance Behind Bars‘ documents collective organizing and the daily struggles inside women’s prisons.  Law also co-created “Tenacious” a zine which makes space for women behind bars to express themselves through art and writings,  and we’ll hear more about the compelling stories they tell.

And actress and comedian Sandy Brown – star of Oh, Yes She Did!, a one-woman salute to black American female pioneers – joins us in studio. Winner of a 2012 NAACP Theatre Award for Best One-Person Show, Brown brings to life the powerful legacies of legendary black women whose triumphs over challenges changed the course of American history forever.

Then, on Feb-14th Eve Ensler and her organization V-Day are inviting one billion women and those who love them to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP and DEMAND an end to violence against women and girls. We’ll hear from Eve Ensler about the inspiration & goals for the day of events, and we’re joined by Los Angeles coordinator Lindsey Horvath and local organizer, Marcella Fasano to get their updates about local OBR events.

PLUS… FemMag Reads is back – with Danielle Roderick, and Meg Wade from Skylight Books – and their take on Sylvia Federici’s Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle”

THIS is What Feminism Sounds Like!
