The Feminist Lens is honored to share the stories from the new book “Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors” by Anne Ream of the Voices and Faces Project.

On tonight’s show we speak with Mary Bonnett of Her Story Theater about her play Shadow Town as well as hear a performance by one of her actors.

We also talk with our good friend Anne Ream, Director of the Voices and Faces Project and author of of Lived Through This: Listening to the Stories of Sexual Violence Survivors

Tonight’s show is about the multi-billion dollar business that is sex trafficking. It’s about women’s bodies as profit centers, slavery and violence against women.

Including segments on the  Hobby Lobby decision, comedy from Lady Parts Justice, incredible music from the Voices and Faces Project and The Angel Band CDs plus a scathing commentary on George Will’s, well, idiocy.

Please join us for this important provocative show Friday July 25th, at 9:30 on WFMT.

New Feminist Lens Show Listen Now!

If you missed our show on WFMT at 9:30 pm May 16th we present an encore our latest Feminist Lens show!

American Healthcare: Is it violence against women? From reproductive health to skyrocketing insurance premiums, being a woman in America, with or without insurance, is a crap shoot to access to healthcare.

Why is simply being a woman a pre-existing condition?

We will talk with artists, filmmakers and musicians on how they deal with a class and gender tiered healthcare system and how it has affected their art and lives.

Do not miss this show!
