FM July 25: Whitelash / Reproductive Rights

THIS WEEK on Feminist Magazine with host Kiyana Williams – RADIO to RESIST and ENGAGE

FIRST – Is whitelash enough of an explainer for the rise of President Donald Trump? Featuring a rebroadcast of a piece by Making Contact, we hear from associate professor of African American Studies at Princeton University Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor. She is the author of #From BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation and gives us some insight into the 2016 election results.

AND – Kiyana Williams speaks with writer, director, and producer Civia Tamarkin, about her new feature length documentary Birthright: A War Storywhich reveals how, all across America, women’s reproductive rights are the target of a system of control, largely rooted in religious doctrine and patriarchy. Hear the many ways in which a women’s right to body autonomy has been disregarded and shrouded in the misleading notion that abortion is the focal point in the political discourse surrounding women’s reproduction rights.

All this on Feminist Magazine KPFK 90.7 FM. Tuesday at 2P.
