FM June 16: WOC Disrupt Violence / Tolerating Dad / Dyke Marches

This week on Feminist Magazine, with host Lynn Harris Ballen :  … FIRSTMaking Contact brings us interviews on the theme: ‘Not Throw Away Women: Black and Indigenous Women Disrupt Violence‘.  We’ll learn how one community is undoing the silence around the violence women of color face, from the Her Resilience mural project in East Oakland. With Kimberly Smith, community member and Gabrielle Rae Travis, Community Outreach Coordinator….We’ll also hear about how serial killers were able to murder Black women for three decades in South Los Angeles without police action or justice, with Margaret Prescod founder of Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders and host of KPFK’s Sojourner Truth.  Then we’ll take you to the Yucatan where pregnant indigenous women struggle under a health care system failing to provide proper medical care. With guests Mirna Aracely Tuz Acosta of Safe Maternity for the Indigenous Population in East Yucatan and Neyi Amparo Cime Arceo, resident of Xanlah.
… THEN… Tolerating Dad”.  Cherise Charleswell interviews Dr. Andrea Loewendorf, Research Scientist at Huntington Medical Research Institutes, telling us about current research on pregnancy complications, including pre-eclampsia, and how they may result from the mother’s immunological cells and lack of tolerance towards the father’s contribution.
… AND… for LGBT Pride month… Kelly Cogswell, author of the memoir “Eating Fire: My Life as a Lesbian Avenger”, talks about the first Dyke March in 1993. Telling us about what inspired lesbians to start the march – often finding themselves invisible in the gay movement and marginalized in feminist movements. And, why Dyke Marches are still happening and bringing together young lesbians and queer women, in cities around the US and the world.

All this and more on Tuesday at 3pm,  THIS is What Feminism Sounds Like!
