copy rss link

Occupy: A New World or Patriarchy as Usual? Kate Raphael sits down with Cyn, Kaitlyn and Frank of Occupy Oakland’s Feminist And Queers Against Capitalism and Shaista Husain of Occupy Wall Street’s Safer Spaces and Immigrant Justice Working Groups. We discuss whether large-scale consensus process is truly empowering for women, people of color and trans folks, how the encampments have dealt with violence and harassment, and whether Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street deserves the ink it’s gotten.
