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.

Unsung hero of Oregon history: Abigail Scott Duniway fought for women's right to vote throughout the Northwest, but over 5 elections male voters in her homestate, Oregon, defeated ballot initiatives to allow women to vote. Abigail's brother, Harvey Scott was editor of the Oregonian. He campaigned against women's rights and other progressive issues. Two years after Harvey's death, voters in Oregon approved a women's right to vote.  Portland honors Harvey Scott with a statue atop Mt Tabor, but Abigail has received few honors.  Music: Songs of the Suffragettes by Elizabeth Knight; Oh Dear by Gerri Gribi.
