FM April 2: “Chick History”, Girls Rock & “Justice for My Sister”

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen and Lauren McQuade : Chick History is “a place to come together and (re)learn about all the cool things chicks have done that, like the dishes, otherwise might go unnoticed.”
And Chick History founder, Rebecca Price, is committed to sharing women’s contributions to history and finding new and interesting ways to tell those stories for everyone to learn and enjoy. She joins us to talk about the #HerStory Project, a podcast series of contemporary women each sharing the story of a woman in history who directly inspired them.

And coming up this weekend in LA – the JUSTICE FOR MY SISTER doc film collective presents: Retomemos la Noche (Take Back the Night) @ Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights. In collaboration with MUJERES DE MAIZ this event includes POETRY (by Weaving Worlds, Creating Worlds), MUSIC, WORKSHOPS, INTERVENTIONS, and a screening of the FILM plus a SOLIDARITY WALK.   We talk to director Kimberly Bautista and members of the collective about the event.

Did you know that there are more than 48 “Rock ‘n Roll Camps for Girls” around the world – including the US, Europe and S. America? All thanks to one woman who rocks – Misty McElroy, founder of the first Rock’n’Roll Camp For Girls in Portland.  Now Candace Hansen and April Buker, two of the co-founders of the newest camp – Rock ‘n Roll Camp for Girls OC – join us in studio to talk about empowering girls through music education. They’re creating this summer camp experience in Orange County, to mentor girls in music and self-expression, boost self-esteem and create community.

THIS is what Feminism Sounds Like!
