Dec 31 on FM: Our Year-End Wrap up!

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen, Celina Alvarez, Danielle Roderick, Meg Wade & Abeni Moreno : Coming up this week on Feminist Magazine… our Year-end Wrap Up of some of our favorite arts & culture stories of 2013!
In January… activist & community organizer Felicia Montes brought us her take on the passing of Jenni Rivera– Chicana/ Mexican regional music star representing the LBC, homies, single-moms, and ‘chakalosa lokas’ from across Cali, the southwest and the Americas. We talked about Jenni’s kind of feminism, what she meant to her fans & to her communities. And what the mainstream media missed in covering her. With lots of music!
Plus, what do the Virgen de Guadalupe and a Radical Chicana Feminist have in common? We’ll found out just that when we spoke with Digital Diva Alma Lopez, and heard how seeing things through a different lens created what we now know as ”Our Lady of Controversy“. Through her work, her activism, and her popular website, Lopez is recognized as one of the most visible and cutting-edge Chicana-feminist lesbian artists in the country.
And… What it’s like to read the work of Adrienne Rich for the first time? April was National Poetry month. And our FemMag Reads hosts Danielle Roderick, and Meg Wade told us all about it.
Plus… One of the most famous names in the history of feminist small press publishers is THIRD WOMAN PRESS. It was a press for transgressive artists, writers, and intellectuals, publishing the work of feminists of color starting in 1979 – including the last reprinting of ‘This Bridge Called My Back’. We were joined by Sara A. Ramírez and Mariana Lui – two members of the collective who recently come together to revitalize Third Woman Press – in the spirit of intergenerational alliances, and with the support of community.
All this on Tuesday at 3pm… This is what Feminism Sounds like!
