FM March 15th: Grrrls on Film /BinderCon Writers /Rape Statute of Limitations/

Coming up this week on Feminist Magazine with hosts
Lynn Harris Ballen & Candace Hansen :

FIRST, we’re joined by activist Ivy Bottini and Cosby survivor Lili Bernard of  EndRapeSOL – working to abolish the Statute of Limitations for rape and sexual assault in California.  It can take many years for rape victims to disclose – and file police reports.  Yet California has a  ten year Statute of Limitations that denies survivors justice. We’ll hear about #EndRapeSOL’s work, State Senator Connie Leyva’s recently introduced Justice for Survivors Act (SB 813) and how we can all be working to change this.
… AND … Remember Mitt Romney’s ‘Binders full of women’ comment? Well, BinderCon aims to take women and gender non-conforming writers out of those binders in every way – it’s a conference and a community, giving diverse writers the tools, connections, and strategies they need to advance their writing careers. BinderCon is coming to LA again on March 19th & 20th with panels, workshops & keynote speakers including Lisa Kudrow and Rebecca Walker. We hear all about it from BinderCon co-founder Lux Alptraum.
… PLUS … Writers and educators Evelyn McDonnell and Sharon Mooney talk about their event Grrrls on Film, a punk feminist celebration featuring films, music, and discussions to highlight the ways women have used the sonic, stylistic, and political tools of punk to create powerful modes of expression. Grrrls on Film draws on both movies made by female directors and movies about noisemakers from past to present. With special guests including Penelope Spheeris, Alice Bag, and Allison Wolfe,  it’s set to take over Loyola Marymount University March 18th, 19th, and 20th.
All this on TUESDAY at 3, THIS is What Feminism Sounds Like!
