Feminist treasures offered on WBAI/Joy of Resistance Fundraiser, Wednesday, October 24, 9-11 pm

Housework and the unacknowledged and unpaid work of women actually holds up our economic system, according to brilliant thinker-organizer Selmla James, originator of the “Wages for Housework” campaign. In her new book Sex, Race and Class, a collection of her writings from 1952 to the present, she examines not only housework but such diverse topics as Caribbean nationalism, Jews fighting Zionism and the Occupy Wall Street movement–managing to draw their meanings together into one connected vision! Joy of Resistance will be offering her book, along with a CD of a recent interview with KPFK’s Sonali Kohatkar to listeners as a gift for supporting WBAI. 
 
The work of another great radical feminist thinker-activist, Shulamith Firestone, is experiencing a huge revival of interest since her death in August. Her 60’s feminist classic The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Femninist Revolution, long out of print, is now so much in demand, that new copies are selling in the $500.00 to $700.00 range and most booksellers are completely out of stock, even of used copies. But Joy of Resistance/WBAI has managed to find some used copies in good condition and will be offering a limited number of these to listeners who contribute to the station during our fund drive show.
 
We will also be offering a limited number of DVD’s of the groudbreaking theater-piece The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.
 
And of course we’ll be bringing you our usual up-to-the-minute feminist analyses of current events. 

 Joy of Resistance comes to you on the 1st and 3rd Wenesdays of the month, 9-10 pm, @ 99.5 fm in NYC and www.wbai.org live-streaming– bringing you the best in cutting edge feminism.
