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.

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.

An Evening with Lidia Yuknavitch, Author of 'The Chronology of Water'

Bread and Roses hosts Leigh Anne Kranz, Delphine Criszensco and Ashley Thirstrup interview Lidia Yuknavitch, a local writer, teacher, activist and feminist. She is the author of three works of short fiction and literary criticism.  She is an Instructor of English and Women’s Studies Advisor at Mt Hood Community College.   

Her recent memoir, The Chronology of Water: A Memoir is a personal story, though universal. She was born to an angry man’s house, where tears got her sent to the crybaby corner and her voice left for years. She found solace in her sister and swimming, water and words, and a journal hidden under her bed, writing her voice back.

Water got her out of that house, a swimming scholarship to Texas Tech, sheer propulsion of body and will. It was a narrow escape. With rage to burn, she rebelled in the ways that hurt women do, using her body as a battering ram to feel nothing.

The stillbirth of her firstborn, a daughter, finally made her go numb.

It was water and rocks, good mentors and men, art and words, that introduced her to her intellect and made her feel—and write. She found her tribe, gave birth to a son, and made her own happy home.

A universal hero’s journey.

Lidia discusses the memoir, as well as her latest literary works.
