When the concept of patriarchy is brought up, many people tend to think that it’s an issue of the past. However, we know that this definitely is not the case. Patriarchy is, in fact, a major issue that still affects the livelihood of everyone — men included! Living in a patriarchal society places immense pressure on people of all genders to fit into preprescribed roles and meet social expectations — particularly in the workplace, female and queer relationships, and parenting.
Based on her article Patriarchy and How It Shows Up For Everyone, Shannon Ridgway will discuss how to eradicate gender stereotypes, break free of these assigned roles, and free ourselves — as well as others.

Too often today we hear about violence, but do you ever notice, what's not spoken is who is usually the perpetrator of the violence. Environmentalist and radical feminist, otherwise knowsn as Radical Eco-Feminist, Elaine Charkowski will chat with me tonight about the importance of naming male violence, why that's currently taboo and why it is so important that we do it anyway. As she says rather urgently - "It's the vomit on the carpet that everyone steps around and ignores!" In light of the current heat the NFL is taking for trying to sweep away their domestic violence problem, this is a timely subject that just may be changing. We'll discuss the basic ethic of patriarchy which is "might makes right" and how language isused to hide and sanctify the brute force of patriarchy. We'll delve into malespeak as women's "second language" and the "absent referent". You'll hear about the passive voice vs. the active voice, sex neutral terms, erasing and/or watering down women's words, and how important it is to give words the power to act as if they were physical beings. You will not be the same after this show - I promise!
So you think you understand patriarchy? What if masculine “dominance” meant that instead of being in charge, men were required to assume all responsibilities, and had no choice. What if female submission meant that women were protected, provided for, and served, but owned no accountability. What if the definition of masculine identity was inexorably tied to service and sacrifice, and self actualization outside these narrowly defined boundaries was automatically punished with socially approved violence?
Tonight JtO and GWW examine the other side of patriarchy, the side big feminism refuses to acknowledge. It might even be that feminists banging the bongo drum have been right all along, but have only been telling half the story.
Inspired by the movie Malificient, this is Part 2 of our trilogy, celebrating Feminist Fairy Tale & Goddess Mythology. Tonight our guest is with Foremother Barbara Walker. No doubt Barbara's books are in your personal library. We'll discuss the importance of feminist fairy tales and Goddess Mythology and how so many have lost sight of what they teach us and how they're an alternative to the values of our patriarchal world. Barbara also has her new book coming out soon, Belief and Unbelief, and she'll give us some clues as to what that's all about.
Next week I'll be chatting with Lenny Schneir, the partner of the late and beloved Foremother, Merlin Stone, author of the famous book inspiring so many of us - When God Was a Woman. Don't miss Week 1, when I interviewed Charlene Spretnak discussing pre-patriarchal Goddess Mythology.

On the October 1, 2014 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
It has been revealed that in Louisiana a person who has been raped will be forced to pay for services received as part of a rape kit because many of the public hospitals have been privatized. I will discuss why this is wrong and why people shouldn't be surprised Louisiana is doing this.
A pair of teachers have been charged with Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile after a football game. The teachers work for Destrehan High School and had sex with the male 4 days before his 17th birthday. Certain conservatives, especially so called "Men's RIghts Advocates" are up in arms about the double standard. I will go over why their fears are often unfounded and why they fight the people they need to be working with to end double standards.
Finally, California passed a "Yes Means Yes" law that places certain requirements on universities. Men's rights groups are also up in arms about this law as well. I will explain why they are so very wrong in their criticisms of the law and where the criticisms should take place.
Those issues, headlines, words of redneck wisdom, tweet of the week and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.

Redefining male / female, patriarchy, matriarchy and what these concepts are doing to our society.
Forging Freedom: Black Women and the Pursuit of Liberty in Antebellum Charleston
For black women in antebellum Charleston, freedom was not a static legal category but a fragile and contingent experience. A deeply researched social history, Forging Freedom reveals the ways in which black women in Charleston acquired, defined, and defended their own vision of freedom.
Drawing on legislative and judicial materials, probate data, tax lists, church records, family papers, and more, Myers creates detailed portraits of individual women while exploring how black female Charlestonians sought to create a fuller freedom by improving their financial, social, and legal standing. Examining both those who were officially manumitted and those who lived as free persons but lacked official documentation, Myers reveals that free black women filed lawsuits and petitions, acquired property (including slaves), entered into contracts, paid taxes, earned wages, attended schools, and formed familial alliances with wealthy and powerful men, black and white--all in an effort to solidify and expand their freedom. Never fully free, black women had to depend on their skills of negotiation in a society dedicated to upholding both slavery and patriarchy. Forging Freedom thus examines the many ways in which Charleston's black women crafted a freedom of their own design instead of accepting the limited existence imagined for them by white Southerners.
Amrita Chakrabarti Myers earned her doctorate in American History from Rutgers University. A historian of the black female experience, she is interested in race, gender, sexuality, rights, freedom, and citizenship and the ways in which these constructs intersect with one another in the lives of black women in the Old South. She is currently Associate Professor of History and Gender Studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
