Anita’s Most Memorable Media of 2017
Every new year I say to myself, “Self, keep track of the media you love this year so when December rolls around you know exactly what to write about,” and every year, I don’t do it. This year is no different. Trying to come up with some of my favourites of the year often results in […]
Caro’s Fave Five: Movies in 2017
Cinema, like all the arts, felt particularly urgent and necessary to me this past year. In the midst of all the sometimes overwhelming shock, rage and fear of 2017, these are the five films that most effectively grounded me back in my own humanity, helped me understand this particular moment in time, and made me remember […]
Our Star Wars Holiday Special: Feminist Frequency Radio Episode 6
On this, our sixth episode of FFR, we go all in on Star Wars: The Last Jedi! (Yes, we dig into the nitty-gritty and there are spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you may want to return to the main segment of this episode later.) Why are some people so upset about this […]
Ebony’s 2017 Comfort Blankets
For what it’s worth (quite a lot, actually), there were moments of solace and triumph in the largely fetid swamp of 2017. For my money, 99% of those moments were born from the work, passion, and creativity of trans folks, the disabled community,* and people of color. I learned more and laughed harder this year than […]
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! We wonder what kind of magic spell Johnny Depp cast to make some people feel like his presence in The Crimes of Grindelwald is A-OK, and we ponder the profound depths of meaning revealed […]
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 […]
Mark Ruffalo’s Cat-Sized Frozen Peanut Butter Dog Adventure: Feminist Frequency Radio Episode Four
In episode four of FFR, just like Riker holding down the bridge for Picard, Carolyn takes over hosting duties while Anita flies back from Europe! (Don’t worry, Anita shall return next week!) We finally meet Ashley, the mysterious fourth member of the Feminist Frequency team, who sheds some light on her role in the organization. We […]
A Nosebleed in Time: Episode Three of Feminist Frequency Radio
We’re back with Episode Three of Feminist Frequency Radio! This week, we dive into the latest entertainment news and share our excitement for Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. We then discuss comedian Hari Kondabolu’s thought-provoking new documentary The Problem with Apu, which looks at the harm done by Apu of The […]
The Good Digital Moustache Removal Place: Episode Two of Feminist Frequency Radio
Welcome to episode two of Feminist Frequency Radio! We’re the show that encourages you to be critical of the media you love, or we’re the feminist killjoys coming to take your media away, depending on your point of view. This week, Carolyn warms things up by sharing her concerns about Amazon’s forthcoming The Lord of the […]
Feminist Answering Machine: Jaclyn Friedman on Who Needs Stories About Amazing Girls the Most
This week on our one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art Feminist Answering Machine, the fantastic author, speaker and activist Jaclyn Friedman calls in with an important message about popular storytelling. For generations, girls have learned to identify with the heroic men in books, films, and other media, but, as Jaclyn so aptly puts it, boys are taught to act as […]
