Programming to celebrate and honor International Women's Day: A KBOO Tradition

Continuing KBOO's long standing tradition of special programming to honor International Women's Day, this year we have 35 hours lined up to inform, inspire and celebrate women.  All programs during this special time are produced by women, with all women tech crews, too.  There will be a mix of music programming, including a couple of blocks of live music on Friday, and information and news, too!  It all starts Thursday evening at 7 pm, and runs through Saturday morning at 6 am. Pt. 2

Due to the length of the special programming time, we are rolling out the schedule in three parts, this is the middle section, covering 7 am - 7 pm, Friday, March 8th.

8 - 9 am - Positively RevoltingHosts Ani and Sara speak with Andrea Strong of, a movement to end pornography, patriarchy and the enslavement and degradation of women, and Rebecca Peatow Nickels, the Executive Director of Portland Women’s Crisis Line. Together, they will address violence against women on multiple levels.  They will examine the issues of domestic violence and rape culture, how to identify patterns and reinforcements for patriarchy and what people can do to make positive change. This week’s episode will also cover resources for women who are caught in abusive situations.
