Ariana Barer interviews Darla Goodwin. How do feminist principles and Aboriginal teachings from local territories intersect? Is there such thing as Aboriginal Feminism(s)? Given Canada’s context of colonization and systemic privileging of some over others, how have feminists been able to stand as allies with Aboriginal women and activists?
Ariana Barer and Carissa Ropponen feature two women speaking about reclaiming feminism and how they, their communitites, and their generations are defining the word and the movement. We aired a TEDx Euston talk by award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie called “We Should All Be Feminists” followed by Courtney Martin’s TED Women talk entitled “This Isn’t Her Mother’s Feminism.”
Ariana Barer interviews Angela Matthews about her recent research on stranger harassment and its impact on the holistic health of women and the health of our communities.
The F Word airs two short lectures from the Breaking Cycles plenary at the 2011 Women’s World Conference in Ottawa: feminist economist Devaki Jain and feminist scholar and anti-violence advocate Andrea Smith.
