Global Feminists Building New Futures
From Kobani in Syria to Cochabama in Bolivia, feminists are creating experiments in collectivism as a means to women’s equality and safety. We hear about the Rojava Revolution, a democratic socialist feminist democracy being constructed in northern Syria, and women’s collectives in Bolivia who are changing the meaning of self-defense in the country with the highest rate of gender-based violence in Latin America.
Guests: Janet Biehl, translator of Revolution in Rojava: Democratic Autonomy and Women’s Liberation in Syrian Kurdistan; Leny Olvera-Rojas, grassroots feminist activist, scholar and musician from Cochabamba, Bolivia.
Produced and Hosted by Kate Raphael.
