Accessibility Through Art

We talk with three women who are exploring ways to make their commitments to social justice and transformation more accessible: novelists Ellen Bravo and Diana Block and dharma teacher and musician Eve Decker.

Ellen Bravo is the author of Again and Again, which looks at the issue of date rape on college campuses, moving back and forth between 1979, when date rape was a new and little understood concept, and 2010, when the rapist is running for Senate.

Diana Block’s new novel, Clandestine Occupations, delves into the same territory as her memoir, Arm The Spirit: A Woman’s Journey Underground and Back.  Clandestine Occupations looks at radical movements of the 1970s through the 2000s and beyond, through the eyes of five different women characters.

Eve Decker is a Buddhist teacher, singer/songwriter, and song leader.  Her new CD is In: Chants of Mindfulness and Compassion.
