What Is Feminism Anyway?

Bridget B. here and I'll be your host for this edition of Bread and Roses at 6pm on KBOO 90.7FM.  Listen in as I talk about Feminism with references from key voices from the feminist movement, including Gloria from All In The Family, Gloria Steinem and Rebecca Walker.

Yes, this will be my last show with Bread & Roses and I wouldn't have come this far in producing shows like this had it not been for the wonderful opportunities to create radio with the help of this collective.  I'll still be on KBOO every other Saturday night from 7pm - 10pm hosting an Evening of Afrotainment and will continue to produce public affairs pieces for either podcasting or airing on other programs.  Send me an email and let me know if you'd like to be added to the email list for future announcements on my shows.

Discussion with film makers Vassiliki Katrivanou and Bushra Azzouz
In the spring of 2004, Maria, a Greek Cypriot, and Zehra, a Turkish Cypriot, cross to opposite sides of the green line, which has divided Cyprus since the war of 1974, to visit family homes they have not seen for thirty years. Thus begins the personal journey of these women haunted by war and pain, but searching for reconciliation and common ground. On the eve of the U.N. referendum to reunite the divided island, many buried stories from the past emerge.

The Importance of Mother's Day

Bridget B. here to let you know that I'm set to host the next edition of Bread & Roses on KBOO 90.7FM, Friday, May 8, 2009 from 6pm - 7pm.

Given that this show falls right before Mother's Day, I'd like to bring to your attention the what, why, when and by whom Mother's Day was conceived, what it has become over time and what you can do to re-direct this day back towards its original meaning.

During this one hour show, I'll share with you the "Mother's Day Proclamation", as recited by some famous female actors and activists, I'll include some Mother's Day stories and call your attention to organizations like CodePink that are making a difference as it relates to feminism, Mother's Day and the national agenda.

You can join the conversation when I open the phone lines to hear from you, our Bread and Roses listeners, as you tell us what Mother's Day means to you this Friday, May 8, 2009 on KBOO 90.7FM from 6pm - 7pm.

Desiree Helleger: No Room on her own

program:

Wed, 06/20/2012

Desiree Hellegers is Co-Director of the Center for Social and Environmental Justice, Associate Chair and Associate Professor of English at Washington State University, Vancouver. She is an active member of various advocacy organizations and her writing has appeared in such publications as Counterpunch.
Her book "No Room of Her Own- Women's Stories of Homelessness, Life, Death, and Resistance" is an oral history collection and brings together interviews with fifteen women who share the common experience of homelessness. All the interviews were conducted in Seattle, Washington between 1991 and 2008, but the women's stories zigzag across the country. The narrators recount stories of growing up in the south at the tail end of Jim Crow, of growing up gay and Black in the Pacific Northwest in the 1960s, and of surviving childhood molestation in Harlan, Kentucky in the 1970s. The stories illuminate the part that gender roles play in ensnaring women in cycles of domestic abuse and homelessness. They speak to the physical stresses of homelessness, and the toll it takes on bodies already weakened by high blood pressure, strokes, sickle cell anemia, and epilepsy and the routine threats of physical violence that homeless women in particular encounter on the street. At the same time, however, the stories challenge liberal myths about homeless people, and homeless women in particular, as vulnerable and dependent people worthy perhaps of sympathy but judged to be socially disorganized, disaffiliated and disempowered.

The popularity of nail salons and beauty spas is very high. But how much of the beauty we buy is toxic? And what are the work conditions like behind the aroma-therapeutic fog?
A conversation with Lisa Fu, Program Director for the Californian Healthy Nail Salon Collaborative. She introduces us to the mostly immigrant women who work in the salons, to their work conditions and to the toxic substances both they and their customers are exposed to. We explore what can be done to improve that reality.
We also discuss the conditions in the local Aveda-branded Dosha salons and spas. Madelyn Elder, President of Communications Workers of America Local 7901, talks about violations of federal labor law and the response by the owner and management when workers decided to unionize.
