February 10th, 2014: One Billion Rising & Tribute to Gwen Avery

KPFA Women's Magazine honors the life and powerful music of blues singer Gwen Avery, who died suddenly a couple weeks ago at the age of 71.

We also talk about this year's One Billion Rising events with local activist and priestess Afia Walking Tree.
Bay Area Rising, in conjunction with V-Day's One Billion Rising movement, announces:
   'Stand for Real Love'
First Presbyterian Church
2619 Broadway
Oakland, CA 94612
Doors open at 6:30 PM, Performance starts at 7:00 PM

And we showcase the film "Radical Harmonies," a documentary of the women's music movement, from the 1970s forward.  Women's music is more eclectic than we often think.  We are offering the film as a thank you gift for donations to KPFA during this fund drive show.

Please click here to listen to the entire show and if you can make a pledge to support the station and keep women's programming in the Bay Area, we are most appreciative.
