SORT BY Relevancy
Have you been following or reading about the #YesAllWomen movement on Twitter? Juneau blogged about how the stories of how all women live with the threat of violence made her reflect about why Adam Lambert won her heart. But there is more to it than that. Adam has inspired so many and given women -- and men -- the courage to face fear, throw off their shackles and not be dictated to about how they should look, or feel, or behave.
We live in a very complex time, with extreme oppression of women still widespread in much of the world, while in the West, women have made strides undreamt of just a generation ago... and yet our media are filled with images of women that seem more hypersexualized than ever. Is this empowerment or a trap? And what about men? When white males still fill the CEO suites and earn more than women for doing the same jobs, why are some so filled with rage? Is this just the backlash of those who are losing their privileged positions, or is something else going on?
Juneau will join Nika for a live discussion. Call in to share your views! We look forward to an hour of serious discussion and seriously good music, of course!

Hosts Jesse and Cody discuss the recent mass shooting near Santa Barbara, perpetrated by apparent misogynist Elliot Rodger, looking at excerpts from his manifesto and examining how many of his ideas are to be found embedded within our culture at large. Alos examined is the #YesAllWomen campaign and its #NotAllMen detractors, the power of raising awareness and the lack of action taken on such awareness. Finally, the roots of such misogyny are found to lie deep in our prehistory, which can only be uprooted and disposed of with a massive shift in our cultural consciousness.
How many times can we say "never again" before it's true? And how do we end the cycle of violence when it is wrapped so tightly around misogyny and race? How do we keep guns out of killers hands? And how do we address this country's inadequacy of mental health care? MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli, Anoosh Jorjorian and Donna Schwartz Mills talk about the Isla Vista tragedy in this political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
Amy Beth welcomes author and Men's Rights critic Daniel Haight to discuss the controversial Men's Rights movement and the social fall-out of the recent murder spree outside UC Santa Barbara. A sci-fi writer and self proclaimed "Neo-Male," Daniel has gotten flack for his criticism.
Are men really victims in our society? Or just whining now that women are encroaching on their domain? What do we-both men and women-owe each other?
And now the Wisconsin stabbings: 12 year old girls brutally attacking a "friend" to impress a fictional Internet character. How can parents protect their kids? What's the media's responsibility? And where do we draw the line between responsibility and censorship?
How can parents, educators, counselors, communities raise better, stronger people? And what's the impact of social media?
And the usuals: Free-flow pop culture convo, Inspiration to Action Shout-outs & more!
