episode one: NEW YEARS REVOLUTIONS
there's a LOT we want to say about "bitchface" -
that it's epically voicing the thoughts that we've been struggling to identify for so long // instigating the conversations we've wanted to have but didn't know how // saying the things we've yearned to express without knowing we wanted to express them. but instead, we'll just let it speak for itself, dammit.
WHAT'S ALL IN HERE? check out:
- Yumi Sakugawa reading "7 Rituals from the Feminist Utopia: Prebirth to Postdeath" from "The Feminist Utopia Project"
- co-host Phoebe talks to her G-ma / Holocaust survivor Eva Unterman about whether feminism was relevant for her, and whether it's relevant now.
- co-host NK & her mom Valerie Hunter-Kelly talk about whether feminism informed a career decision that had unintended effects on their relationship.
- bitchface contributors read a paraphrasing from "The Fifty Year Ridicule" in The Dialectic of Sex.
- Selfish contributor and contributing editor Kelsey Nolan reads her issue one essay about breaking up & moving on in a piece called "His & Hers."
- "Sad Sax Song" by Leah Menzer is the realest break-up song of 2016.
