FM Sept 23: Women & Labor, Black Faces/White Spaces, Anais Nin

Hosted by Valecia Phillips and Rita Gonzales. With Cherise Charleswell :

Coming up on Feminist Magazine – We’ll spend the first half of the hour discussing what really happened to Rosie the Riveter, and the relationship between the labor movement and women’s movement with writer, researcher, and activist Brigid O’ Farrell of Veteran Feminists of America. Brigid will be serving as the keynote speaker for Veteran Feminists of America’s upcoming event “Labor and the Women’s Movement: The untold story and why it matters”.

AND, Why are African-Americans so underrepresented when it comes to interest in nature, outdoor recreation, and environmentalism? We talk with author and UC Berkeley professor Carolyn Finney about her book,Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors”. We’ll focus on Black women, and how legacies of cultural trauma and lack of representation have shaped environmental participation.

PLUS, Pacifica Radio Archives is busy working on preserving thousands of recordings from women’s history (1963-1982) that will eventually be made available to the public in digitized formats. We’ll share a new and never-released discovery from the collection – an excerpt from a 1974 talk by acclaimed writer Anais Nin in which she shares her thoughts on feminism and “The New Woman”. We’ll also tell you how you can support this effort.

Tuesday at 3:00 PM. THIS is what feminism sounds like!
