FM Sep 26: Travel Ban / SoCal Punk Women

THIS WEEK on Feminist Magazine with host Valecia Phillips ::

FIRST – Leading up to the U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Trump’s travel ban next month, we feature a piece from Making Contact about the order’s impact on people from affected, Muslim-majority countries, and how advocacy groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations are responding. It begins with the story of PHD student Nisrin Abdelrahman who was in flight to the U.S. when Trump signed his first travel ban followed by a conversation with civil rights attorney and executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Zahar Billo.

THEN – Lucretia Tye Jasmine speaks with librarian, college professor, and punk rock feminist, Stacy Russo, about her new book, We Were Going To Change The World: Interviews with Women from the 1970s and 1980s Southern California Punk Rock Scene. Russo describes how her approach to making the book mirrors the punk rock aesthetic she examines, with her “inner Mohawk” and feminist sensibility driving her on. Musicians, journalists, photographers, zine-makers, DJs, and fans express how punk rock affected them personally and politically over time, through musical style, personal philosophy, fashion sense and practical action, from the cars they drive and how they eat, to how they interact with others in the world.
