Sunday, Dec 4, 6-7 PM: “Identity Politics”, Feminism & the Election–guest: Susan Cox; excerpts from National Women’s Liberation post-election speak-out

 Joy of Resistance is now heard on Sundays at 6-7 PM on WBAI Radio, 99.5 FM (EST), and streams at wbai.org . Follow us on twitter at @joyofresistance Email us at jor@wbai.org Donate to WBAI at give2wbai.org

The above is a quote form an article by our guest, Susan Cox, from and article in feministcurrent.com, entitled: Women’s Issues Aren’t Just “Identity Politics.”

She will be our guest on Joy of Resistance this Sunday, in a far ranging discussion that will encompass the history and meanings of the term “identity politics”; how it has been used to belittle and trivialize women’s issues, including related historical incarnations such as the Communist movement’s labeling of feminism “bourgeois”–to the current left’s use of the tem “identity politics”–and why the structural nature of womnen’s oppression is much deeper than “identity.”

We will also be playing excerpts from the huge women’s meeting that took place in response to the election, on November 15 in answer to the call from National Women’s Liberation: “Women, let’s meet to organize the Resistance.”
