My Body, My Message (Encore) – July 10, 2015

This is a special encore edition. The female body as medium, and as message. How can a woman determine how she is perceived by the world, and even by herself?  On this edition, we hear stories of women who are using their bodies for political protest, and as tools of self-empowerment…forcing everyone to reevaluate their perspectives on the female form.

Featuring:  Neda Topaloski & Xenia Chernyshova, Femen members; Galia Ackerman, author of the book “Femen”; Catherine King, International Museum of Women Vice President of Exhibitions and Programs; Yolando Y’Netta Harbin-Venson, Big Ol Pretty Girls owner; Jenny “Diva” Davis, Diva’s Exquisite Designs.

Host: Jasmin Lopez
Producers: George Lavender, Laura Flynn, and Andrew Stelzer
