This week, as Congress pushes for a government shutdown if legislation defunding Planned Parenthood is not passed, we will speak with Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the country’s largest grassroots feminist organization. NOW is joining with other progressive groups to fight these draconian moves on women’s rights under the slogan: NO funding cuts, NO shutdown, and NO compromises!
In our second segment we’ll have women working with National Women’s Liberation, live in our studio, to talk about their current campaign. Building on their success distributing “THIS OPPRESSES WOMEN” stickers (which have now appeared on sexist ads throughout the world), they are taking it to the streets of New York City with video-booths in public spaces, where they are interviewing women on what oppresses them. They’ll report back on their action of this past Sunday, talk about their own reactions to sexist ads and announce an upcoming action on Tuesday, September 29*
We’ll also be presenting our Feminist News Roundup.
*Tuesday Sept 29th, 5pm-7pm
