Past Programs

Women’s Media Group explores the new definition of feminism in today’s world.  In the fall of 2008, we produced “Talk.in Feminism Today: Bring Back the “F” Word", and a series of panel discussions, recorded before a live audience followed. Listen to – and read about – those forums here. Through our current radio series The Feminist Lens, our film screenings and special events, we present the variety, scope, imagination and courage of women: artists, professionals, retirees and outstanding activists working in the world today.
