Part 1: The Republican-controlled Congress is on a tear to tear up what little there is of the American safety net and their budget proposal directly attacks many of the programs on which women depend.
Part 2: Women’s History itself is the subject of the 2nd part of our last show during Women’s History Month: An interview with legendary feminist pioneer Kathie Sarachild. From her 1975 landmark essay The Power of History (Feminist Revolution), which focused on the erasure from history of the pioneers of the early-second-wave Women’s Liberation Movement and their replacement by liberal media-chosen ‘stars’–to current examples of how the knowledge of authentic women’s history and the strategies developed by early radical feminist groups are helping today’s young activists of National Women’s Liberation achieve important victories. A “DON’T MISS!” interview!
