Tonight's Show: Feminist News & Music

Tonight we spin some tunes and discuss some recent events in the news.

Links to news we're discussing:
  • American couple sets up the website and asks the public to vote on whether they should abort their pregnancy or carry through with it. Needless to say, this has insulted/pissed off almost everyone in some way... and bloggers at Jezebel and Feministing can't help but think it's a pro-life publicity stunt.

  • Edmonton has a new ad campaign that targets men who prey on drunk women. The ads feature slogans like "Just because she isn't saying no... doesn't mean she's saying yes" and are meant to resonate with young men.

  • Ok, so this isn't "news," but it's quite interesting. A bunch of Playboy memorabilia is up for auction at Christie's, and most interesting are the copies of centerfolds from the 90's and early 2000's that are marked up by editors in the art department. The message is clear: no matter how much dieting, plastic surgery, tanning and waxing you do, you'll never be perfect enough to be a fantasy woman. Check it out.
