FM Sept 12: Left in LA/ Disability Rights / Kate Millett

This week on Feminist Magazine, with hosts Lynn Harris Ballen and Kiyana Williams : FIRST … We hear all about Left in LA – a recent one-day feminist, queer, anti-capitalist event. A day long gathering of political activists and organizers on the gender peripheries of the left, with inspiring speakers and creative workshops. We’re joined by two of the organizers – Miranda Sklaroff and Moya Márquez – to hear a report back and what’s next.
THEN … What’s at stake when the current administration wants to cut your healthcare? Disability rights activists are literally fighting for the ability to stay alive — if Obamacare is repealed, many Americans will lose access to the healthcare they need to live. Sarah Mirk of Popaganda talks with Stephanie Woodward of the Center for Disability Rights about what it was like to occupy Senator Mitch McConnell’s office last June – to protest plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act — and how she was zip-tied and arrested for her protest.
ANDKate Millett, the brilliant author, artist, thinker and activist whose 1970 book Sexual Politics became a keystone of second-wave feminism, died last week at the age of 82. We talk to academic and author Maggie Doherty, who has written about Kate and her generation of bold, radical feminists.
ALL this on Tuesday at 2 on KPFK. This is what Feminism Sounds Like!
