What Are Abortion Stories For? Fucking While Feminist Episode 57

Recently, actress Jemima Kirke posted a video in support of the Center for Reproductive Rights’ Draw the Line campaign, in which she talked about having an abortion. Kirke’s frank story inspired an article in the Daily Beast arguing that we shouldn’t focus on people telling their abortion stories, because it doesn’t change policy.

The ensuing brouhaha left me with a lot of questions, so I asked the brilliant Renee Bracey Sherman to help me understand the power and purpose of abortion storytelling, and what it was like to tell her own story so publicly for Fusion earlier this year. And then we helped out a listener with some advice about consent and setting boundaries with a friend.

TOPIC: Finding your voice in the midst of difficult conversations – In her keynote, Jaclyn does a great job in teaching our students to own their voice and to have courage to speak when it matters. We know this is critical when asking for consent, but it’s also critical to when our Orientation Leaders and RAs have any difficult conversations with the new students.

LOCATION: TBD

Genius, Tragedy & Resilience: Fucking While Feminist Episode 56

It’s not like we haven’t had a few genius guests on Fucking While Feminists before. But we’ve never had a certified MacArthur Genius. Until now.

The brilliant Sarah Deer was recognized with a MacArthur grant in the most recent 2014 class, and for good reason: her work leveraging her deep understanding of tribal and federal law to empower tribal nations to protect Native American women from sexual and domestic violence is literally changing the world. She joins Jaclyn to talk about how colonial misogyny against Native women became one of the pillars on which our country is built, what we can learn from pre-colonial tribal justice practices about 21st century adjudication of sexual violence, and what happens after you get that call from MacArthur. Then we help out a listener who uses “bad” words, but only in her head.

50 Shades of Over It: FWF Episode 53 (take 2!)

[There was a file error in the last post, so we’re trying again.]

WE’RE BACK. And unless you’ve been living under a log, you know that so is the woman-hating kinkphobic abuse manual called 50 Shades of Grey, which hits theaters on Friday.

Last month, Jaclyn learned all about the horrors 50 Shades via bestselling author Jenny Trout’s world-famous hate-read recaps, and today she’s got Jenny on the line to ask the key questions, including: What does it mean that so many women love a book that hates them so much? If most things are better than 50 Shades, what are the best things that are better than 50 Shades? How did you wind up on the Steve Harvey Show? Do you have Stockholm Syndrome with respect to E.L. James? Then we take on a listener question about coming out as submissive to a new beau.
