An Awe-Inspiring Collaboration Between Visionary Creators Hideo Kojima and Tommy Wiseau: FFR Ep Five
On this week’s episode of Feminist Frequency Radio, the gang rejoices as Anita returns from Europe and records her first FFR stateside!

Is the Force Feminist? A Look Back at Women in Star Wars
The Last Jedi is almost here, and like so many people, we can’t wait to see the next part of Rey’s adventure! Of course, for some, the centering of Rey in The Force Awakens and then Jyn Erso in Rogue One represented a major disturbance in the Force; to them, the Star Wars saga was morphing […]

Eleven Is the Hero I Needed in 1984
NOTE: This piece references events that take place at the end of Stranger Things season two. I want to tell you about Eleven, and why she’s my favorite in a long line of young magical outsiders. I wonder, would she prefer I call her Jane now? Jane strikes me as too plain a name for her […]

Help Us Stand Up and Speak Out: A Message from Anita
There’s no two ways about it: for so many marginalized people, 2017 has been a particularly painful and difficult year. And yet, in the midst of the hardship, we’ve seen inspiring moments of protest, collective action, and possibly even the beginnings of cultural change, with survivors of sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood coming forward, […]
7 Ways to Talk to Your Racist Uncle This Thanksgiving
Well, it’s Thanksgiving, that wonderful American tradition where we come together with loved ones over a delicious meal to argue with our sister for the 27th time about how she buried our Barbies in the backyard when we were five. (In retrospect, she may have been doing us a favor.) Of course, not all family disputes […]
The Good Digital Moustache Removal Place: Episode Two of Feminist Frequency Radio
