“What’s on your feminist mind?”–is a new segment that Joy of Resistance will air this Sunday, September 25, between 6 and 7 pm (our new timeslot!). In this segment, groups of women will discuss, in personal terms, the burning feminist issues they confront in their daily lives–followed by a group discussion of what we’ve all said and “drawing conclusions.” We’ll then open up the discussion to listener call-ins. We hope to run this segment monthly.

The women who will be speaking this week are all in their 20’s and 30’s–but what they have to say will resonate with women of all ages, and may be a barometer of what today’s young women still face in a world supposedly more advanced on the issue of sexism.

From Consciousness Raising (CR) to the Internet, the core of the feminist movement has always been women simply talking to each other and sharing experiences–then taking action based on what they learned in these conversations. Much is now known about what issues need to be addressed for women to be equal in society, but going back to CR grounds us and keeps us checking on ourselves and deepening our insight.

Tune in for this important interactive conversation and theory-making experiment.

We’ll also air our regular Feminist News segment–and great music.
