WLRN Music Hour #4 with DJ Phoenixx

LESBIANISM as Resistance As we here in the US drag ourselves across the one year marker of a particular misogynistic white male supremacist presidential rule, it seems prudent on this week’s Women’s Liberation Music Hour with Phoenixx to focus again on Resistance! Last time, our music of Resistance carried the flavor of Anger; this time, the music flavor will celebrate Lesbianism. Separating ourselves from men, focusing on one another as Sisters/Lovers/Friends/Tribemates/etc and as Sonia...

WLRN Music Hour #3 with Phoenixx -- Resistance

This week on the Women’s Liberation Music Hour with Phoenixx, the theme is Resistance with a special focus on Anger. In general, women are socialized to not feel anger, let alone act on it. Of course, it’s no coincidence that rebellion, resistance and revolution against male supremacy is fueled and sustained by anger. Feeling and acting on one’s anger is essential to Women’s Liberation. Reasons for being angry these days are too many to enumerate, but if I were to name a few... sexism,...

Ruth Greenberg on Coalition-building

Edition 13 deals with the debate among women regarding radical feminists who align with right wing forces, individuals & organizations to reach a narrowly agreed upon goal. It is always hard for us to decide what makes it in to our podcasts and what does not. We usually have far more material to include than we do space. What Ruth adds to this discussion is extremely valuable and we hope that women will listen to this in addition to all of the voices in edition 13. Thanks.
