For last Saturday’s taping, we were joined by three outstanding guests:
Linda Bubon, co-owner of Women and Children first.
Paula Kamen, author of: Finding Iris Chang: Friendship, Ambition and the Loss of An Extraordinary Mind and All in My Head: An Epic Quest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable, and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache.
Regina Buccola, Assoc. Prof. Literature at Roosevelt Univ.
Thanks to the entire crew: Nick Bacon, Ben Housten, Erik Parsons, Joe Fedorko, Lindsay hereer, Valentina, Neil, Frank and Leadway Bar and Grill.
We took on a big one this time, engaging in a two-part series on Feminism. During the eating and drinking, we discussed the womens rights to bodily integrity in light of recent, and very troubling, stories in the news. Street safety and harassment, abortion and birth control, domestic violence and gun control, and sexual agency vs. sexual slavery/trafficking. Were all covered.
Did you know Chicago is a “hub” for girls and women being sold from Mexico, Russia, Poland? We’re talking about girls and women, ranging from age 14 to their early 20’s.
Our CAN TV series will be running May through June of this year. Be sure to check us out and please give us your take on the right of women to control their bodies, the recent attempts to roll-back protections for women, as well as any of the other issues we cover on the show.
I’m going to contact Paula Kamen; she lives in Aville and has written several important books on feminism.
