August 13, 9-10 pm: A conversation with Meghan Murphy on the Amnesty International stand on decriminalization of “sex work” and Sunsara Taylor on women in Mississippi–a state with one remaining abortion clinic

WBAI is heard at 99.5 FM (EST) and streams at wbai.org Follow us on twitter at @joyofresistance Donate to WBAI at give2wbai.org

Joy of Resistance proudly presents two interviews with passionate feminists on some of the most important current issues facing women.

We will speak with Meghan Murphy, founder of Feminist Current, Canada’s most widely read feminist blog, on the recent decision by Amnesty International to work toward the decriminalization of “sex work”/prostitution.

We’ll also speak with Sunsara Taylor of Stop Patriarchy on her recent trip to Jackson, Mississippi, where she spoke with women who have had to travel hundreds of miles, escape abuse and endure anti-abortion shaming and harassment in order to assert their constitutional right to control their own bodies–in a state in which there is only one abortion clinic left.

We’ll also cover the feminist news, including stories on the abolition of genital mutilation in Nigeria, the end of “gendered toys” at Target, what Donald Trump’s public misogyny means for women and the African American women who was subjected to a public vaginal search in a parking lot.

Rosita Libre de Marulanda will be co-hosting with Fran Luck.
