New Feminist Lens Show January 31st!

January 10th, 2014 by admin

“Ain’t Nobody’s Business” to air on WFMT January 31st at 10pm.

Following up their award winning show “Breaking The Silence,” the Feminist Lens continues the conversation on violence against women and takes the listener into the very intimate world of “domestic” violence.

Featuring the voices of Chicago actors Susan Hart, Paul Oakley Stovall, and Troy Martin plus personal stories shared from the WMG team, “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” highlights works from Shakespeare to Verdi, Billy Holiday to Rhianna, comedian Louie CK to former president Jimmy Carter.

The Feminist Lens was recently honored with a “2013 International Documentary Award of Excellence” by the International Association of Women in Radio and Television, Oslo, Norway” and we hope you will join us for our next thought-provoking program to launch us into the new year!
