Show Notes:

How do women and women's issues factor into Occupy Wall Street? Has the history of sexism in progressive movements extended into the Occupy movement? While this movement is exciting, inspiring, and an incredible display of solidarity among "the 99 per cent," issues of racism and sexism have popped up -- how is this being addressed? How should it be addressed? Are minorities being heard?

The F Word explores the particular ways in which women are impacted by economic inequity and how progressive men can ally with women and minorioties in progressive movements.

Featuring an interview with Kathy Miriam and Cathy Barbarits, who have been actively bringing feminism to Occupy Wall Street. For more on their work, visit: www.FeminismNowOWS.wordpress.com or http://occupypatriarchy.org/
