    Feminism and Motherhood with Dr Penny Griffin

    in Women

    Feminism is a word that can conjure up all sorts of ideas and negative conotations from the way the so-called Feminist has been portrayed in the media.   This is interesting given that the definination of a Feminist is a person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.  How can this phrase or topic be 'passe'?  Our guest Dr Penny Griffin has a PhD in Politics and International Reations and a passion for Feminist Theory.  As women, and as mothers we are consuming an ideal image of ourselves which is often misaligned to our own personal values and needs. Is consuming high-end products really the epitimy of feminism?  Not according to Dr Griffin.  


    "We are surrounded by choices that are problematic", she says and a "System that regulates women in terms of motherhood."

    Show notes:



    Are we in a post-feminist era and what does that mean?
    How does the media agenda effect your expectations as a woman?
    Do we even want what we are expected to want?
    The mythology around motherhood 
    What do we hear when we hear the words feminist and feminism
    The sea-change since Julia Guillard's mysonginist speach
    What does feminism mean for motherhood in 2016?
    What do the youth of today have to say?


    "To me, Feminism is about paying attention to the apparently trivial, mundane and intimate aspects of our lives."   Dr Penny Griffin.

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HONOR CRIMES, AND IMMIGRANT WOMEN: THE COMMON FACTOR

    in Current Events

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, HONOR CRIMES, AND IMMIGRANT WOMEN: THE COMMON FACTOR


    Domestic violence in the US, honor crimes in those “other” countries: are they really so different? And what can this mean for women who immigrate to the US and have experienced both?  What are the connections, what are the commonalities, and what are the realities for women of all cultures when it comes to victimization by intimate partners?


    Jessica Winegar says the 18,000 women killed by abusers in the US between 2003 and 2014 are no different from the women killed in the Middle East or South Asia. She is the Harold H. and Virginia Anderson Chair in Anthropology at Northwestern University. Her research specialization is in the Middle East, and she has written widely on issues of gender, Islam, and global politics.  Penny Venetis is Executive Vice President and Legal Director of Legal Momentum and as Clinical Professor of Law, and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic, at Rutgers, she specialized in civil rights and international human rights impact litigation. She instituted women’s rights projects in the Rutgers Law School clinics, developed human trafficking advocacy projects, and recruited and supervised pro bono attorneys from major law firms to work on the Clinic’s landmark cases.


    Join us as we discuss domestic violence, honor crimes, cultural similarities and differences, and the realities for women who are victimized.

    Multi-talented saxophonist, producer and composer Michael Lington's ninth solo project, SECOND NATURE, in tribute to the roots of Memphis soul is set for release April 22., 2016.  The album reunites Lington with producer by Barry Eastmond and features  all originals with the exception of one cover, the chart-topping soul anthem, “Soul Finger.”   In preparing for this album, Lington immersed himself in the classic Memphis sessions and even journeyed to the STAX museum  While most of the album was recorded at the famed Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, he also recorded at the legendary Royal Studios in Memphis, which has churned out sessions for everyone from Al Green, Chuck Berry and Buddy Guy to Ike and Tina Turner, Solomon Burke, Otis Rush and Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland.


    SECOND NATURE unites a who’s who list in music that transcends genre and musical boundaries, including GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and venerable bluesman Booker T.
