FM June 2: Women Fast for $15/OC Girls Rock/Privacy is a Civil Right

Coming up on Feminist Magazine this week, with hosts Lynn Harris Ballen & Felicia Montes : The Fight for $15 – the fight to raise the minimum wage – has become a social justice movement that transcends industry and geographic boundaries. But, income inequality disproportionately affects women, particularly women of color and single mothers trying to make ends meet in expensive cities like Los Angeles. So last month a group of courageous women took visible action – fasting for 15 days outside LA city hall to call attention to the city council’s vote. We’re joined live in studio by two of the ‘LA Women Fast for 15‘ activists Elena Popp and TJ Michels – to hear what’s been won & what they’re working on next.
And … Who’s teaching Girls the Value of Being Loud? Rock ‘n Roll Camp for Girls Orange County is weeklong summer camp empowering female-identified individuals through the art of music. Tune in to hear Rock ‘n Roll cofounder Candace Hansen telling us about this year’s camp and what girls learn from collaboration, community & rocking out hard!
Plus … Who defines what “privacy” means these days? Far too often, conversations about privacy online don’t talk about how the United States uses surveillance—specifically to police communities of color. Malkia Cyril of the Center for Media Justice talks about the issue with Sara Mirk via Bitch Media’s Popaganda podcast.
All this on Tuesday at 3. THIS is What Feminism Sounds Like!
