Discussion About Reproductive Rights, Justice and Equity with members of We Are BRAVE

program date: 
Mon, 06/23/2014
Jan Haaken talks with Shantae Johnson and Diego Hernandez of We Are BRAVE (Building Reproductive Autonomy and Voices for Equity), about the fight for reproductive rights and justice for everyone. They do so in light of the new, widely acclaimed movie "Obvious Child", which portrays the process of navigating an unwanted pregnancy as a romantic comedy. They focus though on the work of We Are BRAVE, a project of the Western States Center devoted to reproductive rights and justice for women of color, stressing that abortion isn't the only issue. 13:03 minutes (5.23 MB)

Movie Moles: Orange is the New Black Season 2

program date: 
Mon, 06/23/2014
Frann Michel and Iven Hale take a second critical look at the latest season of Orange is the New Black (click here to hear season one review). They discuss its potential merit, including just increasing the exposure of the prison industrial complex in popular culture, but find that it has strayed from effective commentary on the state of mass incarceration, queer or race issues it seemed like it might offer.  Some relevant links available here. 12:19 minutes (4.94 MB)

More Orange

For the 23 June 2014 Old Mole Variety Hour, Iven Hale and I review season two of Orange is the New Black.

Alas, season two has the problems we noted in season one, and lacks some of the compensating virtues.

It continues downplaying the problem of sexual violence, for instance.

We agree with much of Yasmin Nair's season two review, "The Reign of Whitey is Never Over."
