Iven Hale considers the patriarchal theories of intimate partner violence espoused by some feminists and the difficulties in applying this to same-sex intimate partner violence, which happens with about the same frequency as among other-sex relationships. She shares several stories of her own experiences with violence at the hands of  female partners, both physical and verbal. In the end, she points to how "power and control pervades our culture, and is perpetuated by our economic system." 8:28 minutes (3.87 MB)

The $15 Minimum Wage And The Fight Beyond

program date: 
Mon, 07/07/2014
Bill Resnick talks with Arun Gupta about how the $15 minimum wage ordinance that was recently passed by the City Council in Seattle came to be. Arun points out how people are agitated by the bank-bailouts, the role played by Socialist Alternative and Kshama Sawant's election to the City Council, the contentiousness about and limitations to the final ordinance. They also consider what kind of organizing is or is not behind getting the ordinance passed. In this vein, they talk about "militant shopfloor organizing" vs. electoral organizing, the role played by independent media, weilding control at the "point of production, and the problem of finding solidarity as "all that is solid melts into air."
