Monday's Show - Sexist Politicians, Burqas, Genderless Kids... and more!

Tune in to Yeah, What She Said on Monday June 29 from 8:30 to 9:00 pm (MST) to hear our feminist news and events show. We'll be discussing a variety of recent news stories relating to feminism, plus we'll inform you about some upcoming feminist-themed plays at Calgary's Fringe Festival.

The show will have a particular focus on two recent stories involving sexist comments from Alberta politicians:
- Alberta Finance Minister, Iris Evans, tells us one parent should stay home in order to raise kids right
- Conservative MLA, Doug Elniski, has some sexist advice for young girls: smile, don't give men shit, and "don't give me that treated equal stuff"

Other news stories we'll be covering:
- President Sarkozy Says Burqa Not Welcome in France
- Swedish couple raises child outside of gender norms
- Dubai is Hot, but Paris is Not! Paris Hilton in Dubai


  1. I'm really excited for your show today!

  2. The show was awesome tonight! I really agree with the general reaction to Iris Evans' comments about having one parent stay at home in order to raise kids "properly", as she had put it. What a blow to all the hard-working single mums and dads out there.

  3. Thanks folks! Glad you enjoyed the show. It's nice to hear from our listeners ;-)
